My boys are older and love just about everything scary when it comes to Halloween. But that was certainly not the case when they were little munchkins. 

My older son did not like scary stuff at all when he was young. So we tended to keep our Halloween decorating fun instead of scary. 

Even the Halloween cupcakes the kids would help make were cute. (Is there even a such a thing as a  scary cupcake though??)

So with fun in mind, I put together a list of the 10 best Halloween books for preschoolers and toddlers based on parent reviews that are perfectly silly, happy, giggle-worthy.

And best of all, these Halloween books are FUN, not scary for kids!
