Linky Party: Halloween Books

Linking up with Chrissy at First Grade Found Me to share some of my favorite Halloween-ish books:
Several years ago I had a student who didn't celebrate Halloween. We also don't do a Halloween dress up day at my school anymore, and ever since then, I've kinda shied away from Halloween books. I guess I just don't want to offend anyone. I decided to link up anyway, because one of my all-time favorite books is Halloween-ish:
This book is about three friends who make pumpkin soup together, and each has a special job for making the soup... until one day Duck decides he wants to stir the soup instead of Squirrel. Cat and Squirrel tell him no, and he becomes upset and leaves the house. Cat and Squirrel soon find out that they need Duck to help make the soup and want him to come back. It's a good story that teaches friendship, working together, compromise, and sharing. And the illustrations are super cute too!

Who doesn't love the Old Lady?

A classic!

And one more for ya!
My 3 year old son L.O.V.E.S this book!!! A little young for second graders, but we read this book at home all. the. time! Even in April...

What are some of your favorite Halloween books?
