One activity I love to do at Halloween class parties is have a story corner for one of the stations. Sometimes I have had the story corner combined with a snack or refreshment, so while they are eating, they are still engaged and calm. There are so many fun Halloween books and some of them are quite interactive as well. So here I share some of my favorites. Please comment below and share some of your favorites back!

Most children and parents have heard the poem, Five Little Pumpkins. Here's a fun way to let the kids enjoy the poem to pictures. And here is a link to a fun game you can play in conjunction with the book.

A delightful book about a lady walking through the woods at night. What makes this especially fun for youngsters is the repetitive chants throughout the book that they can learn and repeat with you as you go. A perfect book for a story corner at a Halloween Party! I even found a fun game that goes along with this book with free printables! An another site with arts on crafts to go along. I must not be the only one who loves this book!

A colorful and fun book that teaches children numbers and counting at the same time as the Trick or Treaters disappear one by one.
by Alyssa Capucilli
A great interactive book with lots of repetition as one by one spooky things are added. Similar to "This is the House that Jack Built" format. Young children do very well with repetitive books like this that keep them engaged and allow them to interact.

A cute book that not only teaches kids not to worry about those nighttime monsters, but also reviews colors in a bright and fun way. So many cute crafts go along with this, including these cute handprint monsters and paper plate monsters and other activities!
by Julia Donaldson
A fun Halloween story about a witch who has to decide if there is room on her broom for unexpected guests.
by Lorna Balian
A Halloween story with a twist at the end. A witch just can't get her magic to work until at the end you discover she is actually a little girl dressing up!
by Caroline Stutson
A book I found recently that builds upon itself as spooky things happen by the light of the Halloween Moon. A great one for young learners and interaction.
