We aren't into the spooky and gory stuff of Halloween, but I think it's a perfect time to learn about things that are deemed scary around Halloween like skeletons and bats.   Your children will probably see decorations of them around and what a better time to learn more about them and that they are in fact not scary at all!

This is also a great time to use the illustration of the jack-o-lantern to learn about God's love for us and how to shine God's light!

Of course, we read and watched some of our favorites who are celebrating Halloween like Biscuit and Franklin.

Below is a list of the books and videos that we've been reading and watching to celebrate the season!
