It's my favorite time of year! Scary decorations are everywhere and everyone is picking out a costume to wear on Halloween night. Do you know what costume you are wearing? If not, maybe you can get an idea from one of these Halloween books!

Get up from your seat and shake your bones with the cool characters in Shake Dem Halloween Bones.  Cinderella's got seven bright braids and Red Riding Hood dances with Jack as your favorite characters party together for Halloween.

How much room does a witch have on her broom? Find out in the fun-filled book Room on the Broom. A story that proves being nice has its rewards.

Are you afraid of things that go bump in the night or are you like The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything? See what happens when a pair of shoes, a pair of pants and other items come to life to try and frighten her.

Look closely at the book Scary, Scary Halloween. Is it a skeleton, a ghost, a vampire or something else? Maybe these are just costumes? Find out for yourself!

Oscar isn't the most popular dog in the neighborhood and dressing up in a giant hot dog bun with mustard isn't helping matters. Will Oscar's luck change this Halloween? The Hallo-wiener is a don't miss, pun-filled book you’ll love.

For even more holiday fun, try these Halloween books.
