So, in an effort to find some Halloween/fall-ish books that I can actually read to my kids I've been working my local librarians extra hard these days by putting dozens of books on hold in search of a few that cover Halloween without an evil/scary tone. Here's my list so far, I'll keep adding to it as I find more!
I'm Bernadette By: Emily Ortega (This story is about a girl trying to decide which Saint to be for the All Saints' Day parade and is written by a former FOCUS missionary. I haven't read it, as it is currently on pre-sale, but I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!)
The Pumpkin Patch Parable By: Liz Curtis Higgs
Pumpkin Pumpkin By: Jeanne Titherington
It's Pumpkin Time! By: Zoe Hall*
Leaf Man By: Lois Ehlert
The Biggest Pumpkin Ever By: Steven Kroll*
Grandma's Smile By: Elaine Moore
The Very Best Pumpkin By: Mark Kimball Moulton (We loved this one!)
How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? By: Margaret McNamara
Too Many Pumpkins By: Linda White*
Plumply, Dumply Pumpkin By: Mary Serfozo
Pumpkin Moonshine By: Tasha Tudor
*Books with an asterisk have a mild reference to secular Halloween, such as a picture of a child dressed up as a ghost on their way to trick or treat.
Are there any books you've found that would fit on this list? If so, please add them to the comments so I can check them out!
