(Not Too) Spooky Reads for Kids

Last week we covered some super spooky reads for teens and adults and, I know, not everyone’s about that scared-silly life, especially the little ones. So, as Halloween creeps ever closer, and if you’ve been requested to read a scary (but not too scary) book for bedtime, don’t worry: I’ve got your back. Here are sixteen books, eight picture books and eight chapter/middle grade titles perfect for that ever so slightly spooky story time.
