I was really happy to be presented with such positive responses to our seasonal shelf and autumnal books/decorations a few weeks ago (thank you!) and, as I said, we’ll be updating our shelf throughout the year to sync up with the seasons and holidays/special occasions.
Unless you’ve been living in a bat cave (how fun would that be?) you’ll have probably noticed that Halloween is just around the corner and to get us in a dark, magical mood I’ve given our seasonal shelf a spooky makeover!
Do you like it? I left all of the leaves on because it’s still the same season and they look pretty cool don’t they?
As before, I’ve listed everything below so you can just click through easily…
I didn’t have to add too much to the books we already had as, naturally, we’re pretty well-stocked when it comes to spooky stuff…
I remember frantically searching for Funnybones when we first started collecting books for Lily as it’s one that’s always stuck with me since being a little girl myself. You can’t beat books by Janet and Allan Ahlberg can you? There’s still tons of Ahlberg books that I’d like to buy that we haven’t gotten our hands on yet!

Are you and your sproglets excited for Halloween? Will you/they be dressing up?
Don’t forget to check back in November to see our Winter Seasonal Shelf (and if you’ve got any ideas as to what I should include, please do let me know!)
