One of my favorite ways to get into the holiday spirit (whichever holiday might be coming up) is to gather as many books as I can that relate to the holiday to read with my kids. Just this week, my son and I read the classic It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (incredibly, I think the copy we have is an original 1967 edition, which somehow made it through two generations of childhoods).
There are so many great Halloween-themed books to enjoy with kids this time of year, and I love the Halloween picture books that 5 Minutes for Books has been featuring this week. Check out each of the reviews and recaps that the 5 Minutes for Books writers have written about this fun selection of books for kids.
