Oh my goodness, I am going to be reading spooky books well into the new year!! I just got this collection from @simonkids and I am so excited I don’t know where to start. Which one would you read first?!

The Nighthouse Keeper
“Evie once again leaves her world behind to rescue Blight Harbor's ghosts in this second book in the bone-chilling middle grade Blight Harbor trilogy that's reminiscent of Doll Bones and Small Spaces.”

The Bellwoods Game
“this spooky, highly illustrated middle grade novel follows a girl who hopes to fix her outcast status through a game in the haunted woods, only to discover that some legends shouldn't be played with.”

Middle School and other Disasters – Worst Love Spell Ever!
“Witch-in-training Heidi Heckelbeck wants her crush to notice her. Featuring black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout and sparkly foil on the cover!”

The Bravest Warrior in Nefaria
“Phineas and Ferb meets the Despicable Me series in this hilarious and heartwarming middle grade debut from acclaimed author Adi Alsaid about a wannabe hero who lives in a goofily evil kingdom where nefarious schemes abound.”

Bite Risk
“The Last Kids on Earth gets a lupine twist by way of Margaret Peterson Haddix in this eerie middle grade adventure set in a small town where all the adults are werewolves but the kids begin to suspect something else sinister is putting them at even greater risk.”

Finch House
“Encanto meets Coraline in this spooky middle grade story that deals with family ties, fear of change, and generational trauma as it follows a girl who must convince an old, haunted house to release its hold on her and her family.”

Misfit Mansion
“spooky and sweet MG GN about a monster girl who sneaks out of her foster home and into a human town in search of a forever family but finds more than she bargained for.”

Will you be staying home to pass out candy or heading out trick or treating? I will doing a little of both and always love seeing the costume trends – I wonder how many Swifties I will see this year?! What do you think will be the most popular?

Here are some Spooktacular Halloween themed board books:

EEK! Halloween!
“There’s a big round moon in a dark, dark sky. The chickens are nervous. Do you know why?” Giggle along as the chickens discover all the fun that goes into celebrating Halloween.

“When it comes to Fall there’s so much to love. The weather turns cool, the clothes get cozy, and there’s only ONE treat everyone wants to eat.” Which do you think the Fall treat of choice will be… apple or pumpkin?

“The Wheels on the race car go zoom, zoom, zoom…” A wheelchair transforms into a race car, a carriage and more in this brilliant twist of The Wheels on the Bus.

“Weenie loves Halloween, but try as they might, they can’t decide what to be on this night. Should they be..” A hilarious rhyming read aloud about a hotdog named Weenie trying to find a costume for Halloween. @katievernonart

“Dear Great Pumpkin, Linus write, I’m looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you will bring me lots of presents.” A retelling of the beloved story sure to have everyone giggling this Halloween season.

It’s here!! 🥹🥳 Challah Day! written by me & illustrated by @jkirsch118 is out in the world! Please join me in celebrating the messy delicious sweetness that comes from baking together as a family by commenting with your favorite meal to bake (or cook). Happy Challah Day! everyone!!

Book Description: It’s Challah Day! A family mixes, kneads, and braids bread in this joyful, rhyming story about a Jewish holiday food that’s baked with love.

From kneading sticky dough to gathering with family around the table, Challah Day celebrates family, food, heritage, and tradition! Join this happy family as they bake delicious braided egg bread for their Friday night Shabbat dinner.

Yeast and sugar – water’s warm,
mix and watch those bubbles form!
Crack the eggs – one… two… three… four
Extra if some hit the floor.

Messy flour and laughter abound. The scent of warm bread fills the house. Grandma and Grandpa bring the candles and hugs. Parents, kids, and baby too, can read this kid-friendly, rhyming recipe together.

Inspired by memories author Charlotte Offsay and illustrator Jason Kirschner have of baking Challah with their children, Challah Day celebrates the sweetness of sharing homemade food as a family.

In the back of the book, read about the cultural importance of Challah and Jewish traditions. This read aloud can be a joyful introduction to a new culture or a cozy way to celebrate a familiar one. Perfect for any occasion as a holiday gift or the start of a new weekly tradition.

A Challah recipe is included.
