Sharing is caring!

We are a family that loves books. And we definitely have our favorite authors and non-seasonal favorites but we also have plenty of holiday and seasonal reads.

Around this time of the year, we love to explore apples and pumpkins. Our home library grows a little bit year by year and here are just a few of our favorite pumpkin books for toddlers and preschoolers.


We will also be sure to integrate a few of these books into our toddler friendly pumpkin activities. And of course, they’ll come in handy when we start our Halloween stuff! I tried to pick out books that were both general pumpkin themed and some that are more Halloween.

Halloween is one of those holidays that I want to approach carefully with Squeaker. We are Christians and we are raising her in that religion. But, I also want her to know holidays (sacred and secular) as well as the origins of holidays.
