We have a tradition that started as soon as my oldest (now sixteen) was born. Every Halloween, we would buy a movie or two…and we would watch scary stuff — as scary as young kids can tolerate — all month long.
Here are a few of the movies we are still watching, after all this time, all year ’round:
Addams Family Values
Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Scary Godmother: The Revenge Of Jimmy
Please share your favorite scary movies in the comments.
Here is a list of Duncan’s top scary books, at the moment…
Room On The Broom
written by: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
The animated short currently on Netflix. We love watching it.
Five Little Pumpkins
written by Ben Mantle
This is Duncan’s all-time favorite book, ever since he was a tiny baby. This is why he loves pumpkins and collects them too.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything
written by Linda Williams
This book always scares the bejeebers out of Duncan.
written by Aaron Reynolds
We just found this one…and it evokes some rather strong opinions about who won in the end.
Frankenstein Makes A Sandwich
written by Adam Rex
This one is a POETRY book that never fails to elicit giggles.
What we are reading right now:
Duncan grabbed this while we were out and refused to put it down, so this is our daily reading this month:
Gustav Gloom and The People Taker, written by Adam-Troy Castro.
It seems to be part of a series of books and we can’t wait to get them all. We are all really enjoying Gustav’s tale.
Feel free to add some more suggestions in the comments.
