Halloween Read Alouds: I Need My Monster

Happy Almost Halloween! It's hard to believe Halloween is next week- it seems like October has flown by! Is the excitement level in your room starting to CREEP up a little bit more each day? 



Today I have a fantastic Halloween read aloud your little monsters will love! Plus if you make it all the way to the end of the post I have a link where you can grab a FREE Halloween Story Organizer that can be used with any Halloween fiction book!


There is so much to love about this book- I Need My Monster written by Amanda Noll and illustrated by Howard McWilliam. 

This story is about a little boy whose regular monster has gone fishing and he is looking for a replacement monster. The book is humorous and creepy and the illustrations are GORGEOUS! The word choice in the book is so entertaining. Your kids will love it! 

This book is available on Storyline Online- read by Rita Moreno. I love the voices that Rita Moreno uses when reading this story aloud- it is great! (If you aren't familiar with Storyline Online- it is a free site that is sponsored by the Screen Actors Guild. There are several read alouds available! 

The sequel to I Need My Monster is also available on Storyline Online- Hey, That's My Monster is read by Lily Tomlin

While both of these books would work anytime of the year- they are especially good to read around Halloween! 

I also have a resource in my Teachers Pay Teachers store that you could use if you are looking for a fun Halloween project- it is a Monster Mash-Up Creative Writing Project. My kids loved this project and were so creative with their stories! If you are interested just click on the cover to be taken right to it!
