If I’m being honest, I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. Sure, it’s fun to dress up and it’s especially adorable dressing up our littles. But I just can’t get into all the creepy crawly “scary” decorations! Eek! Anyone else feel this way?
So instead of Halloween books, I thought I would share some of the books about pumpkins that we have been enjoying recently.
Some of these books do mention Halloween, some more explicitly than others. In my opinion, it’s more “gentle” and not too creepy. But if you are also a little more on the fence about Halloween, I would suggest you look through the books before sharing them with your kids.
