My three-year-old is participating in a children’s book themed co-op preschool this year. In October I am the teacher and I am planning on sharing several of my favorite Halloween books with my little students. I have been collecting many ideas on my Halloween pinterest board and am excited to share some of them with you!

This week I am sharing five favorite pumpkin themed books along with several pumpkin crafts and activities.

These are great ideas to use if you are hosting a pumpkin-themed playdate or talking about pumpkins at preschool!
