Homemade Halloween

It's my favorite time of the year: Halloween season! For the next few weeks, all of my spare time will be spent perfecting my costume, spookying up my home, and exclusively ingesting food shaped like ghosts, goblins, and creepy crawlies. 

If you're a fellow Halloween lover, check out these books to help you celebrate the funnest holiday of the year.
