Not-So-Scary Monster Books

This is in just in time for Halloween. If you are concerned about Halloween books being too scary for your preschooler, here is a list of picture books that may be just right. The reviewer is a mom. Here is the link:


  1. Scary stories need to age appropriate. Thanks for some good ones. I like Where the Wild Things Are.

  2. Thanks for that list. My 4 year old nephew's favorite thing to do is tell scary stories. Except he always tells us, "Don't really make them scary." LOL I think this list will help!

  3. Following your blog now from India. I'm an avid reader and fascinated by the subject of your blog. Love the pics of your family too :)

  4. Thanks for stopping by. Followed ur blog from Mom's Focus


What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
