Reading about pumpkins and goblins opens up many opportunities for kids to build their imagination, suggests a pediatrician.

Such books are able to get kids interested in the concept of reading and eventually get them involved in much deeper reading as they grow older.

Broom sees a lot of value in getting kids excited about Halloween reading. Since they are surrounded by the holiday's festivities at home and school, it provides a perfect learning opportunity.

Many of these books have an altruistic theme, dealing with concepts of loyalty, justice, respect and integrity that parents can use as a platform to talk about the difference between right and wrong.
