Suggested Scary and Spooky Stories for Kindergarten

 

Ready for goosebumps and crazy creatures? Here's a collection of spooky stories featuring unexpected creatures and adventures. Books are suggested for Kindergarten readers and listeners, but remember that each child is different and might find something interesting at another level.

Black dog by Levi Pinfold

The Hope family spots a large black dog outside of their home, and Small, the youngest member of the family, is the only one brave enough to face the dog.

The dark by Lemony Snicket

Laszlo is afraid of the dark which lives in the same big, creaky house as him, until one night the dark pays him a visit.

The gruffalo by Julia Donaldson

A clever mouse uses the threat of a terrifying creature to keep from being eaten by a fox, an owl, and a snake, only to have to outwit that creature as well.

Grover (from ""Sesame Street"") beseeches the reader not to turn the page because "there is a Monster at the end of this book."  When persuasion doesn't work, he ties knots, nails up boards, and even builds a brick wall.  Will you discover the monster by the book's end?
