Kendall’s 5 Favorite Children’s Books – October
We’re back with some of Kendall girl’s favorite books to read! This month we’re bringing in some festive spook for October! Read below and add these to your child(ren)‘s library! Enjoy!
There was an Old Lady who Swallowed A Bat by Lucille Colandro, Illustrated by Jared Lee
Imagine that, she swallowed a bat! Kendall owns many versions of this series and because it’s spooky season, we’re sharing this festive story! The Old Lady is at it again! This book tickles Kendall because of its “sing-readability!” It’s full of rhymes and winded lines and is sure to capture your littles’ attention! Great, fun read for Halloween! Check out the whole series while you’re at it! They’re seasonal and enjoyable for the whole family!
Goodnight Goon: a Petrifying Parody by Michael Rex
In this spooky re-telling of Goodnight Moon, Michael Rex brings the story we know and love into the Halloween season! You and your kids will love this story all the same as you do the original and may even spark some creativity in your kids to retell their favorite stories! This is a must have to break out this time of year! Definitely a funny, spooky favorite!
Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson, Illustrated by Axel Scheffler
Another spooky, fun favorite of Kendall’s! This is a story of a sweet witch and her cat flying on a broomstick when they encounter some unfortunate winds that make the witch lose her hat and other things! This is a silly repetitive rhyming book that will have you an your kids laughing at the silly witch and the cat’s broom ride! We love festive seasonal books because we don’t really read them year-around. They become old favorites that make you excited for Halloween!
Silly Tilly by Eileen Spinelli, Illustrated by David Slonim
All the barnyard gets bothered by a super silly goose, but once Tilly stops being so silly, the herd of farm animals start to miss her jokes and funny tricks around the farm! Tilly cracks miss Kendall up! From painting the farmers plow glittery blue, to shipping pig off to France, it’s so fun to read with the kiddos – they won’t be disappointed! Plus it rhymes which is a must for our girl!
Miss Spider’s Tea Party by David Kirk
Kendall enjoys Miss Spider’s stories – especially this one! This is a feel good story about Miss Spider only wanting to be friends with the insects that are afraid of her. She desperately tried to invite them all to tea, but once she was able to show she was a nice spider, the insects join her for tea and become her friend! It’s a sweet story, rhymes, and sure to be a hit! Plus the illustrations are awesome and colorful – very fun to look at!
