Halloween Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi


Book: Mouse’s First Halloween – Lauren Thompson


(Cute illustrations and a nice, only a smidge spooky, story. Perfect for storytime.)

Song: Ghosts on Halloween


The Ghosts on Halloween say Boo! Boo! Boo!
Boo! Boo! Boo!, Boo! Boo! Boo!
The Ghosts on Halloween say Boo! Boo! Boo!
ll through the night.

Witch...says Hee, hee hee! (rub your tummy)
Skeleton... says clatter, clatter, clatter. (shake your arms)
Monster... says Growl, Growl, Growl. (hands up like claws)

(A variation of Wheel on the Bus, acting like different Halloween monsters)

(I'm just sticking these in from memory...if I find my original ...which is of course much better, =P I'll update it.)


Book: The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything – Linda Williams


(A really  nice cumulative story with some interactive potential.)

Activity: Boo! It’s Halloween
Tune: Pop Goes the Weasel


Sometimes I like to walk in the dark,
I like to shout and scream,
I walk up behind somebody I know,
BOO! It's Halloween!

(A fun, simple chant. You can do it again and again.. getting more and more quiet with louder Boo!'s.)

Book: Los Gatos Black on Halloween – Marisa Montes


(Really atmospheric with some nice bilingual elements.)

Shadow play: In the Dark Dark Woods
(see full version here)


(I made transparencies for the classical story. We did it twice, asking before each shift...'should we go in the house?' etc.)

Book: What’s in the Witches Kitchen? – Nick Sharratt


(a fun book with the perfect gross factor appeal. For a smaller group I let the kids open the flaps.)

Craft: Trick or Treat bags


(The kids decorated sandwiches bags and then trick-or-treated to our reference desks and circulation desk.)
