Not-So-Scary Halloween Books That Your Child Will Love

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays throughout the year. The girls love getting  dressed up and meeting with friends for a safe and friendly trick or treat around the neighborhood. We like to start Halloween by reading our favorite Not-So-Scary Halloween Books. We love knocking on our neighbors and friends doors and shouting Trick or Treat! Last year the girls were Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. This year we may have a Cinderella and a Ballerina.
