October Books: "Book of the Month" Blog Hop

Who doesn't love a good holiday/theme/seasonal book? For some reason, it always seems so exciting to have those books that you only pull out at a certain time of year. Well I was just thinking that I needed to find some more October/Halloween books and then I happened upon 1..2..3.. Teach With Me's blog hop for books for the month of October, how perfect? I've already found some books that I'll have to check out.

So here is my October/Halloween book list:

All images via Amazon

1. Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman - A cute little Halloween story about a big pumpkin and all the Halloween creatures you need - witches, bats, vampires, mummies, you name it.

2. Halloween Night by Marjorie Dennis Murray - This is a new purchase for me. It is set to the tune of The Night Before Christmas and thus is great for rhyming.

3. Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich by Adam Rex - Another new purchase for me. It has a bunch of short stories/poems with a Halloween/monster theme.

4. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz - These are perfect for older students and hold a special place in my heart because I remember reading them in elementary school!

Do you have October favourites? Go link up with Tammy to list yours!


  1. Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich sounds like a great find. I am always looking for short stories and poems to read when we have an extra couple of minutes.

  2. I'm curious about this Halloween Night book. Thanks for sharing!
