What are your favorite Halloween Books? I'd love to add new favorites to my collection!


  1. I love the Halloweiner by Dav Pilkey. Has a lot of opportunities for learning vocabulary, and quite a few laughs.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll efinitely have to check that one out!

  2. Big Pumpkin is one of my favorite books to use during Halloween!

    1. Thanks for your comment! I've found that the kids love it too!

  3. I really like There Was an Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, and my students seem to really like it, too. It works for a lot of age groups, as well.

    Talking With Rebecca

    1. You're right! I'm using it next week when we talk about the Five Senses (Hearing with the clomp, clomp, etc!) It's great for teaching new descriptive vocabulary words, too!

  4. I LOVE 5 little pumpkins! When I taught little ones EFL I adapted it to teach about family. Not sure it would be of any use to you but it is always TONS of fuN!

  5. I Need My Monster, lots of good new vocabulary
