October’s Book List
This post contains affiliate links. All options are mine and these are books that I read to my children. I only recommend items that I use myself. For more information please see my disclosures here.
I’ll be honest, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays. I enjoy all of the cute jack-o-lanterns and pretty costumes but none of the scary or gory stuff. Still, my kids do look forward to all of the festivities that surrounds it so I try and participate in my own sweet way. By this I mean we have princess or fun costumes, no skeletons or zombies here! Our decorations are all pretty and festive but in no way scary. Even our nightly book selection is fright-less!
Little do these ten trick-or-treaters know that they are the ones who will be frightened on Halloween night when a toad hops near, a skeleton tries to join their dance party, and a monster asks to share their candy.

It’s evening in the forest and Little Owl wakes up from his day-long sleep to watch his friends enjoying the night. Hedgehog sniffs for mushrooms, Skunk nibbles at berries, Frog croaks, and Cricket sings. A full moon rises and Little Owl can’t understand why anyone would want to miss it. Could the daytime be nearly as wonderful? Mama Owl begins to describe it to him, but as the sun comes up, Little Owl falls fast asleep.
