All Hallows’ Eve Stories

Tomorrow is  Halloween and I’m planning to tell a couple of ghost stories to my Wednesday classes!  There are some spooky fun tales for young children that are exciting and a little bit scary, but not so much that would keep them awake at night.

There are two stories that I’d recommend for the under 12 crowd:

  • The Boy and the Ghost an African-American tale   There is a beautiful retelling of this by Robert D. Dan Souci by the same name.
  •  The Teeny Tiny Woman This classic ghost tales always helps kids get in the Halloween mood.  Paul Galdone’s version is my favourite.

Happy Storytelling!
