Books for October

This is a short list of the books that we plan to read in October. Obviously, some of these will be just me reading. Some will be read alouds, and others will be just the kids reading. This isn't a complete list of books we'll read, either. I purposefully only put a few on here so we have plenty of opportunity to choose new books we find at the library. Our library will have all the Halloween themed books in one place, well the kids ones anyway. Of course, whether or not we read all of these also depends on if our library carries them or not.

The Halloween Tree - Ray Bradbury
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Washington Irving
Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury
Death Makes a Holiday: A Cultural History of Halloween - David Skal
