Happy Halloween!
With it just weeks away, here are our all time favorite Halloween books and our favorite Halloween DVD:

Kiki’s Delivery Service - I love Halloween; watching the kids race through our neighborhood screaming for each other to wait up, while munching on their favorite candy—honestly does it get any better than this as moms or as kids?  One of my favorite traditions every year since my oldest were little is to make cocoa for everyone and then curl up, candy  bags spilled out on floor, and watch our favorite Halloween movie, ever; Kiki’s Delivery ServiceNo matter the ages of my kids, this tradition is enjoyed by EVERYONE. It wouldn’t be a Davis Halloween without it!  Check it out on Amazon.com.

Halloween, by Jerry Seinfeld - Imagine Seinfeld recounting his Halloweens as a kid sharing his quest for the all important, “candy.”  You’ll love it!  Check it out on Amazon.com.  

One Halloween Night, by Mark Teague – We adore Mark Teague’s illustrations.  Anything can happen on Halloween, as you follow a group of kids trick-or-treating while enchantments keep them safe from the town bully. Check it out on Amazon.com.
Alice and Greta, by Steven J. Simmons – Alice is a sweet witch and Greta is the less than sweet one.  Learn how the enchantment they learned as kids teaches an important life lesson that all kids will remember.  The message of this book is powerful. Check it out on Amazon.com.
Runaway Pumpkin, by Kevin Lewis – This lovely rhyming tale follows the trail of a pumpkin on the loose.  You’ll love reading this one as each page rhymes with the next. Check it out on Amazon.com. 
Halloween Night on Shivermore Street, by Pam Pollack and Meg BelvisoA counting book that gives you chills along with some thrills. This playful, but sometimes scary Halloween Party has a guest list that may be a bit ghoulish for wee ones, but perfect for your older ones. Check it out on Amazon.com.

Each one of these books is fun, colorful, and will become a fast family favorite!  As always, I love to hear from you so please email me (amy@inspiringmoms.com) with your family’s favorites or post them on our Fan Page on Facebook and we will add them to our growing list!
