As I love Halloween I normally go completely over the top with decorating the house, costumes and pumpkin carving, but this year we were supposed to be moving on Halloween itself (that's no longer happening and we are currently still waiting on a move date) so I didn't want to spend lots of time decorating only to have to take it all down before Halloween, so our bookshelves are our little bit of Halloween fun this year, together with a mini Halloween party for the boys at my sister's house this weekend. We'll be dressing up, doing some Halloween baking, reading our books and doing some pumpkin carving too.
Here's what's on our Halloween bookshelves this year...
Titchy Witch and the Stray Dragon by Rose Impey- This is one we picked up in the library. It's a nice book for young readers as the story is simple and there aren't many words on a page so it's easy for them to remember the key words. Little L loves spotting the black cat on each page and excitedly points at it every time he sees it (he's obsessed with cats).
Winnie's Magic Wand by Valerie Thomas- LO has loved reading this and he particularly loves shouting 'Abracadabra!' when she casts a spell with her wand. The illustrations are so detailed and there's lots to pick out on each page.
So that's what's on our Halloween bookshelf for 2016. Do you have any plans for Halloween or do you avoid it altogether? Have you read any of these books with your children? Do let me know if there's any other Halloween or Autumn books you have read and would recommend and I love finding new ones to read with the boys.
I will hopefully be doing a Christmas themed bookshelf in our new house which I'll be sharing on here so watch out for that!
