This Week’s Children’s Books:

We’ve been reading all of our Halloween favorites and some new books too. Here are some books we’ve read this week.


It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

By Charles M. Schulz

We read this book multiple times a year, even when it’s not Halloween. It wouldn’t be Halloween without it either. Our copy is a 1972 printing, but this year we picked up the beautiful, bright orange 2018 deluxe edition. Both editions are wonderful, and this is a Charles Schulz childhood favorite. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is all about Linus and his belief in the Great Pumpkin. He gives up trick-or-treating to wait for the Great Pumpkin on Halloween night, and just about the only person who believes he might be on to something is Sally.

“Dear Great Pumpkin, I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween Night. Everyone tells me you are fake, but I believe in you. “ – Linus
