What's a sweeter treat than candy?
Stories that kids can read and enjoy again and again!

L.B. and Friends - Halloween
More and more people have been giving books as Halloween treats! There's even a Books for Treats program. Click here to read all about it! Some people plan ahead on their own, too, collecting gently used books (from friends or library sales)!  Click here to read about a special couple who have been giving out books ask Halloween gifts for years!

If you're looking for something quick and simple other than candy and you don't have time to gather enough books for all the ghosts and superheroes in your neighborhood, you can still find lots of fun things that kids will love! Fill your "candy" basket with plastic eyeballs, bat and spider rings, yo-yos, mini coloring books and crayons, bubbles, stickers, mini puzzles and games, fangs, glow-in-the-dark bracelets, finger puppets... just about anything little thing you can find at a dollar store or a party store in bulk!
The two above are from last year's Halloween. We had so much fun and got new picture books, bubbles, snakes and even a Winnie the Pooh doll (who is now my favorite teddy bear)! BEST Halloween treats EVER!
