Halloween is just around the corner – which means that holiday decorating is in full force. I recently talked about how much I love to use children’s books as decor in this post, so it seemed only appropriate to do a post on the best Halloween books for toddlers.

Halloween Books for Kids
When we did this DIY book nook I had visions of making a fun space for the kids each holiday, so I was really excited for this first holiday to come around! I will link to all the fun decor on the post, and be sure to enter on Instagram for a banner to create your own book nook.
I am all about finding books that my kids will love and that will change up what we are reading or looking at on a daily basis for the holidays, but also finds that are pretty enough to have on display. It is shockingly not that hard because books can double as such pretty decor.
For Halloween I found so many books that I love and plan to add some each year to our collection by including them in our spooky baskets.
Displaying your Halloween Books
I have fun book storage in our playroom, the kids rooms, and in our main part of our house, so have found ways to make having pretty books part of our decor.
If that is something that interests you, be sure to check out the blog post below with decorative book storage!
Now onto those fun Halloween books for kids and toddlers – I am sure you will fall in love with a few!

There is a good mix of board books and non board books in these round ups and we own most of them. When it comes to using them as display, I try to stick to a similar color scheme, but then I keep a basket of the other holiday books for the kids in the basement (think ones with the buttons that make noise and such) for them to enjoy too!
Our Halloween Book Display
We took down all our year round books for these Halloween books in our upstairs reading nook. I incorporated a couple pieces of decor and a few pieces of printable art on the shelves as well, and hung some fun banners.
One of my favorite ways to really add to an area during the holidays is these fun banners from Glitter Party Co.
I have used them for so many occasions and they really are the best! Then I added some cute little bats, and changed out my pillows to something that matches (they are sewn by me so I don’t have a link). Last I added this ghost pillow that the kids LOVE, and it was set.
I love that it adds a little area of decor on the main floor that is totally geared towards the kids.
