October 1, 2016
Halloween will be here before you know it, and what better way to usher in the season than by picking up a few fun books to share with your baby? Below are nine board books perfect for baby’s first Halloween:
Those of you who are familiar with Nina Laden’s “Peek-a” series will love this spooky version. Its fun rhymes and pictures, featuring bats, ghosts and jack-o-lanterns, are sure to provide lots of giggles and excitement for your child.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of BabyLit books. When this title first came out, I bought it straight away for my baby, and it’s been a huge hit ever since! Dracula is a counting primer, featuring beautiful illustrations that aren’t too spooky.
This book allows you to lift the flaps to count your way through a spooky old house. With a flap on every page, and a few fun surprises, this book is sure to be a Halloween favorite.
I love the fact that this book incorporates sweet messages with fun Halloween imagery. Your children will love discovering that they are loved the most when they find the mirror at the end of the book.
A little pumpkin is trying to find his way home, and gets a little help from a friendly witch. It’s a great Halloween twist on the classic nursery rhyme.
Who doesn’t love a guessing game? Especially when black cats are involved? Your baby will have fun searching for Boo the black cat among familiar Halloween character and objects, and will enjoy the tactile, flocked cover.
The warm, classically styled illustrations, capture fun Halloween moments that end in an exciting family party. It would be a great addition to any Halloween-themed library, and perfect for baby’s first Halloween.
Another BabyLit gem, Frankenstein is an anatomy primer. Help your baby learn about their bodies (eyes, mouth, arms, etc.) in this vibrantly illustrated volume that is fun for Halloween, and the rest of the year.
This is another Karen Katz classic. Help baby find her pumpkin by searching under leaves, behind a curtain and in other fun places, so that she can go trick-or-treating. You’ll have fun helping your baby lift the flaps to discover all kinds of Halloween fun.
