The Best in Halloween Media

As I mentioned in The Halloween Countdown Chain post, Halloween is a huge deal in our house.  We probably do something “Halloweeney” every single day ALL month long. Everyone always asks me which Halloween books and songs are my favorite.  It changes every Halloween, but here are this year’s top 3 Halloween media pics, all of which are available at Amazon or hopefully at your local library (that’s where we find most of ours).


1. In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories (I Can Read! Reading 2)



Remember all those ghost stories you grew up with?  “The Green Ribbon” was always one of my favorites.  If you like ghost stories, you’ll probably recognize a few in this book!  These short versions are the perfect length for young children.  Landon’s favorite quickly became “The Ghost of John.” We actually probably sing this more than we read the book, so you can imagine how much we sing it.  In case you don’t know how that poem/song goes, here’s how we do it (By the way, that’s him tickling me at the end since I have “no skin on.”)

2. A Halloween Scare in California 


My sister sent my boys a copy of this just last week, and it’s quickly become one of our favorites.  In fact, I’m reading it to Landon’s class at pre-school tomorrow.  I love how everything in the book is relatable and recognizable to where we live, from the dinosaur munching the Hollywood sign to surfing zombies. They make them for several other states, check it out on Amazon and see if yours is there.

3.  The Wiggles Wiggly Halloween 


I never thought I’d be a fan of The Wiggles, but this album is seriously a must-have.  We checked out our copy st the library, but I think I’m going to have to purchase us a copy. The tunes are catchy and hilarious.  After our first round of listening to it, Landon and I were singing along and laughing.  We literally listen to this CD every single day, multiple times a day, in the car.  “Little Vampire” and “Zombie Feet” are at the top of the Playlist. It’s a must for every Halloween fan with a sense of humor.
