Books for an Inclusive Halloween
It's that spooky time of the year and the beginning of the holiday season. There are so many things to prepare for and decorate for. Holiday foods, holiday traditions, and holiday books!! I have five books that I want to share with you. These books are great for the classroom or for bedtime. Get that apple cider ready and your costumes on for the books you will want to start reading this October!

Gustavo the Shy Ghost
This book is a great one to start off new reading materials for this spooky season. Gustavo is a shy ghost who wants to make friends but has a hard time putting himself out there. This simple read, with beautiful illustrations, is fun to read again and again.
Dia de los Muertos
Remembering the different holidays celebrated during this time is another great way to be inclusive this season. This board book is very informational about how people celebrate Dia de los Muertos.
The VERY Hungry Worry Monsters
I will be honest, this book has nothing to do with Halloween, but like there are monsters.. so Halloween enough for me! This is a great, very short, read (and tactile might I add) about the monsters who eat your worries up. This is adorable. Highly recommend!
October isn't all about Halloween. October is also pumpkin season!! Lessons about harvest, pumpkin food, carving pumpkins, 5 senses for pumpkins, the list goes on!
Spookley the Square Pumpkin
Truly a classic. A story about a square pumpkin that (spoiler alert) saves the day! This book is a great example of how we should love our differences and embrace them.
Someday I will be adding my own book to these inclusive books. We need some more books to explain the different ways to trick-or-treat and celebrate October holidays in a variety of ways. If you need free resources or social stories click on this link to be redirected to my site!
