Get ready for fun with these Halloween stories for kids. Read these books on mummies, ghosts and pumpkins as you head into our spookiest season!
Last year, my coworkers and I rocked our Halloween group costume contest. The ten of us dressed as Snow White, the Evil Queen, the Prince and of course, the Seven Dwarves. The rest of the office applauded and took photos as we marched through all three floors to the tune of “Hi-Ho!” We even held pickaxes and Photoshopped the face of one of our coworkers as Snow White in the magic mirror.
This year our costumes will be even better. I’ll give you a hint: A whimsical man. A chocolate factory. Little people who like to march and dance to a theme song.
I also dug through old photos and found some of my earliest Halloween costumes. Check out my awesome witch costume, complete with the plastic wart nose I’m holding in my hand.
Here’s another one of me as Pocahontas. My mom took one of her old shirts and sewed fringe on it. Man, I was so cool.
I’ve fallen off and on the Halloween craze. I didn’t dress up at all in high school (too cool, I guess). I got into it again during college and all the Halloween costume parties I attended. Then I stopped when I graduated, only to start up again when work began hosting costume contests. Here’s me as a ghost bride (this was before we started doing group costume contests):
As usual here on SSBE, I wanted to feature several Halloween books for kids. These adorable books are perfect for little ones, from toddlers to early elementary kids. Hopefully these Halloween books will get you set for the spookiest season of the year.
