Halloween Here I Come by D.J. Steinberg and Laurie Stansfield is new to the collection this year. This one has children of many ethnicities throughout the pages.
Nancy’s Ghostly Halloween by Krista Tucker: The protagonist is white but her best friend is black and shares most of the “screen time” with her!
Trick Arr Treat by Leslie Kimmelman and Jorge Monlongo: The main protagonist is a young black girl and her friends are a mixture of ethnicities.

Pumpkin Eye by Denise Fleming: The children in this book are white and brown skinned.
How to Catch a Monster by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton: the young protagonist in this book appears to be Asian, a bit of a stereotype as he is dressed as a ninja to catch the monster.
I See Fall by Charles Ghign and Ag Jatkowska starts out being about fall but has several pages devoted to Halloween. The children in the book are of many ethnicities.
Halloween Day by Anne Rockwell and Lizzy Rockwell takes place at school as the children try to guess who each of the others is. The children are of many different ethnicities.
The ABCs of Halloween by Lydia Nichols show children in some pretty strange Halloween costumes like Bread and Butter and Underwear as well as regular Halloween standbyes to make the alphabet work. The illustrations are charming and feature children of many ethnicities.
Monster Trouble by Lane Fredrickson and Michael Robertson: I use this book for every monster story time I ever do. The young protagonist is a very funny black girl.
