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 (they are just two years apart) really 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??)

Which was never a problem for me since I also prefer fun over scary as well. 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 most of all FUN, not scary. for your little munchkins!

And check out our ideas for some easy Halloween crafts for kids to make that are fun, pumpkin-themed and perfect for the fall season.

Fun ghosts, cute monsters, and goofy witches enjoy a fun night before Halloween in The Night Before Halloween. This is a great rhyming book for toddlers and preschoolers (but I think even older kids up to 8 or so will love reading this cute Halloween book as well!)

Pumpkin Soup is a children's classic Halloween story that is perfect for a bedtime book to read with your kids this fall, particularly after a trip to your local pumpkin patch! Pumpkin Soup tells the story of 3 animal friends who make pumpkin soup the same way every day. But one day Duck decides he would like to stir the soup instead of adding the salt to the soup. This causes an argument among the three friends. In the end, they come to realize their friendship is more important than anything else, and the story ends happily.

Sandra Boynton's Spooky Pookie is a fun Halloween board book for 2,  3 and 4-year-olds, but really, I think even kindergarteners will enjoy this fun book.

Toddlers will love seeing the costumes Pookie tries on, one by one until Pookie figures out just what to wear for Halloween.

It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse! is more about fall and pumpkins than about Halloween. Actually, the word Halloween is not mentioned in the story at all. Instead, this fun toddler book is more about celebrating the fall season and pumpkins! It is a cute story featuring the familiar Mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
