  2. I LOVE Halloween Picture Books!! My son ended up with WAY too many (if that's a thing) when he was little. Our faves were Goodnight Goon, The Berenstain Bears Spooky Old Tree, and Room on the Broom :)

    1. I love the Berenstain Bears and Room on the Broom is definitely a favorite. Thanks for dropping by, Michelle.

  3. Pumpkin Jack looks good. My kids (23/21 now) LOVED the Berenstain Bears! Thanks for the nice memory.
