Those of you who are familiar with Nina Laden’s “Peek” series will love this ghostly version. It has fun rhymes and pictures and includes bats, ghosts and lanterns that are sure to provide a lot of giggles and excitement to your child.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of them BabyLit books. When this title first came out, I bought it right away for my baby and it has been a huge hit ever since! Dracula is a counting primer that includes beautiful illustrations that are not too ghostly.
One, two … Boo!
Raise the flaps to count your way through this ghostly old house. With a cover on each page and a few fun surprises, this book is sure to be a favorite on Halloween.
I love you, little pumpkin!
I love the fact that this book includes cute messages with fun images of Halloween. Your children will be happy to find that they are loved the most when they find the mirror at the end of the book.
Pumpkin Ity Bitsy
A small pumpkin tries to find its way home and receives some help from a friendly witch. This is a great Halloween twist on the classic children’s rhyme.
Where is Boo?
Who doesn’t love the guessing game? Especially when black cats are involved! Your baby will have fun looking for the black cat Buo among the familiar Halloween characters and objects and will enjoy the tactile, crowded cover.

Where’s the baby pumpkin?
This is another thing Karen Katz classic. Help your baby find his pumpkin by looking under the leaves, behind the curtain and other fun places so he can cheat or eat. You will have fun helping your baby lift the flaps to discover all kinds of Halloween fun.
