9 Children's Halloween Books Everyone Remembers Reading In School

The illustrations are black and white except for the geometric shape featured on each page — octagon, rectangle, decagon, etc. Wally tries everything to get the monsters to stop. Your classroom was decorated in cobwebs and spiders, your got to do fun art projects with pumpkins, and you even had a Halloween party at school where you could dress up, eat candy, and if you were really lucky watch a themed movie.
But the best part of being in school in October wasn't the holiday treats or even your teacher's kooky costume, it was the children's Halloween books that you'll always remember reading. From preschool to middle school, story time to independent reading, your October was filled with fun Halloween stories featuring ghouls, ghost, and witches galore. There were tales of trick-or-treating on dark and windy nights, books about haunted houses and the brave kids who entered them, and mysterious monsters causing all kinds of Halloween mayhem. Chances are that the first book that actually scared you was one you read in school for Halloween.
If you miss the days of scary story time and holiday themed chapter books, then you're not alone. The closer we get to Halloween, the more I miss being a kid — especially because of the books. Here are nine children's Halloween books you probably remember reading in school, because it's OK to reminisce about the good ol' days of trick-or-treating.
Who doesn't remember this charming and witty tale about a witch and her cat pleasantly flying through the night, picking up adorable animals along the way? Doreen Cronin.
