There comes a time in a child's life where "a little bit scary" becomes fun! It must be a rite of passage for all kids to share ghost stories by the campfire or in the dark----knowing that there's a flashlight nearby! Try these books for a scarier Halloween---but not scary enough to have nightmares!
And if your child doesn't like scary stories either he's too young or it's just not his thing and may never be. There are many adults who have passed through childhood without being the slightest bit interested and that's ok too!
