Seeing all these covers brings back such happy memories of when my mom used to read Halloween books to my brother and me before bed! My favorites were "The Runaway Pumpkin" by Kevin Lewis, "Happy Halloween, Little Critter!" by Mercer Mayer, "Barney's Trick or Treat" by Mark S. Bernthal, and "Mrs. McNosh and the Great Big Squash." I can't wait to read them to my kids someday.

Remembering all of these made my day!
