I love this time of year. It is the start of the holidays which makes my heart so happy. Kids make holidays much more exciting, and Halloween is no exception. I LOVE reading Halloween books with my students and children throughout the weeks leading up to Halloween. Kids are excited about each one and giving me all of their attention, which is nice for a change. HA! Here are my favorite 12 Halloween books.
