Halloween Books for Toddlers

Why not share this post!

It's that time of the year when you need to get to your local library or bookstore and grab these great Halloween books for toddlers. I hate missing a good opportunity for some new books to read, and you don't want to miss out on these ones! The books I've chosen are suitable Halloween books for 1,2 and 3-year-olds, and of course, all will be fine for older children too.

I was wondering if you'd be willing to tell me what the flaps are/say in the I love you little pumpkin Book? I bought my daughter a copy on Amazon only to find out it's missing three of the flaps (bunny, monkey and mirror page) and I wan t to make some replacement flaps but I can't find anything online that says what the flaps are or what the words are. If you have a free minute ever, that is. Thanks a billion and love the book suggestions !
