My son is really into zombies right now! He loves anything zombie related, so we’ve been reading a lot of zombie stories together. Here are 7 zombie books to share with your kiddo:
1.Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies by Jorge Lacera —
This is a humorous story about a young zombie who loves vegetables, not brains. The little zombie comes up with all sorts of schemes to get his parents to eat veggies! A little bit spooky and a whole lot of fun, this book is perfect for young monster-lovers.
2. Peanut Butter and Brains by Joe McGee —
Reginald, a zombie, bucks with tradition and goes in search of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches instead of brains. This humorous book isn’t scary, but has great zombie pictures that preschoolers will enjoy. Will Reginald be able to convince his zombie friends that sandwiches are delicious? Read this one and find out! There are more Reginald adventures available too: Peanut Butter and Aliens and Peanut Butter and Santa Claus!
3. Moldilocks and the Three Scares by Lynne Marie. —
In this monster-filled take on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Moldilocks stumbles onto the home of a monster family. She tries 3 bowls of gross soup, sits in 3 spooky chairs, and tries out 3 monster beds before falling fast asleep. The 3 nice monsters return home, and to Moldilocks’ surprise, they welcome her into the family and all live happily-ever-after. My son really likes this book! It has the “spooky” elements that he loves and features a loving, parent-child relations that he enjoys in stories.
4. Zombie in Love by Kelly DiPucchio —
My son loves this book and its sequel, Zombie in Love 2 + 1. Mortimer, a zombie, is looking for love, but without any luck. DiPucchio’s story and Scott Campbell’s illustrations make this funny book a winner! Preschoolers will giggle at the kid-appropriate zombie grossness, such as of a limb falling off in another of Mortimer’s failed attempts at finding love. The reader will cheer for Mortimer through all of his dating attempts and be delighted when he finally meets the zombie of his dreams.
5. I Want to Eat Your Books by Karen LeFrank–
Get ready for a silly zombie story about a little zombie who wants to eat books, not brains! This one is perfect for kiddos who don’t want scary books, but still like zombies. Zombie loves books so much (me too) and the story talks about how awesome books are. When a mummy comes to school, zombie quickly shows the mummy the joy of books.
6. Zombelina by Kristyn Crow —
Zombelilna, a young zombie, loves to dance! She starts a dance class with human girls, and finds that her dancing gives them the creeps. Zombelina practices for the dance recital and her family comes to cheer for her on the big day! However, all of the zombies in the audience scare away the other dancers. Now it is up to Zombelina to get out there and dance to save the show. Will her stage fright hold her back? Borrow this book from your library to find out! Preschoolers will love the rhyming text and the cute illustrations in this book.
7. Abigail and Her Pet Zombie: Halloween by Marie F. Crow–
It’s Halloween and things look a little bit scary. Frightening decorations are put up and grinning jack-o-lanterns light up the night. Lilly is scared of the decorations and costumes. Abigail, a young girl, and her pet zombie set out to help Lilly enjoy the holiday by showing her that just because something looks scary, doesn’t mean that it is. Preschoolers can use this reassurance this time of year.
