Top Ten Tuesday #14 – Halloween Edition

Posted October 28, 2014 by Lillian in Features / 0 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday MemeTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

It’s that time of the week again where I get to make a list 😀 Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Top Ten Books/Movies To Read Or Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit OR Top Ten Characters Who I Would Totally Want To Be For Halloween.” I have to admit this one is really hard!!!!

Since becoming a mom I haven’t had the chance to watch a lot of scary movies (also my husband doesn’t like them so really the last ten years I’ve watched maybe two). So I’m altering the topic slightly: “Top Ten Books/Movies to Read/Watch with Your Children to Get in the Halloween Spirit.” As always these are in no particular order, the movies and books will link to Amazon.

Top Five Books to Read With Your Young Child On Halloween

five-little-pumpkins-coverTiger Tales Five Little Pumpkins Illustrated by Ben Mantle


Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate… The first said, My, it’s getting late! …

Count with the pumpkins from one to five as they each experience the fun and spookiness of Halloween night! Spot-laminated pumpkins shine on the cover of this spirited padded board book.

The soft padded covers, rounded corners and sturdy board pages make this title a perfect fit for preschoolers!

Once upon a time, there was a little old lady who was not afraid of anything! But one autumn night, while walking in the woods, the little old lady heard . . . clomp, clomp, shake, shake, clap, clap. And the little old lady who was not afraid of anything had the scare of her life!

Starring loveable, furry old Grover!

What did that say? On the cover, what did that say? Did that say there will be a monster at the end of this book?

IT DID? Oh, I am so scared of monsters!!!




The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin by Sonja The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin by Sonali Fry, Illustrated by Sanja Rescek


This gently spooky twist on “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” makes a favorite nursery rhyme just perfect for Halloween!

The itsy bitsy pumpkin
rolled down the spooky street.
He passed a ghoulish ghost
and some stinky goblin’s feet.

A little pumpkin is trying to find his way back home! And with a little help from a friendly witch, he is soon safe and sound, back on his porch—where there are no spiders to be seen! Little ones will love this fresh fall spin on a classic nursery rhyme!

Oscar is short, like all dachshunds, and all the other dogs make fun of him. On Halloween he takes more ridicule than ever in his hot-dog costume, but one brave act makes him a Grade-A hero.
