What is your opinion of Halloween? Favorite holiday or just middle of the road? We have an aunt who absolutely loves Halloween, so Fall always reminds us of her. Neither of us are as into it as she was, but we’ve both tried in our own little ways to excite our kids for the holiday.

Not that it takes much. Just the word Halloween has the kiddos drooling over the prospect of candy. So if you are looking for a few Halloween ideas – whether a fun book to read for the kids (or for you) or some easy costumes, we’ve got you covered.

And as always, we also have some Amazon book deals for you!

    I actually can’t believe that it is nearly Halloween. Halloween isn’t one of my favourite holidays but I do love any excuse to decorate the house and to eat candy haha! Some of these books sound really interesting!
