Spooky Stories for Kids

Posted by Mary Ann P.

Do your kids (or grandkids) love being told spooky stories?  With Halloween approaching, this is a great time to surprise them with some new tales.  The following collections of scary stories are perfect for a dark and stormy night!  

This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore is filled with tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright.
There is a story here for everyone -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney.

All those who enjoyed shuddering their way through Alvin Schwartz's first volume of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark will find a satisfyingly spooky sequel in this new collection of the macabre, the funny, and the fantastic. Is it possible to die -- and not know it? What if a person is buried too soon? What happens to a thief foolish enough to rob a corpse, or to a murderer whose victim returns from the grave? Read about these terrifying predicaments as well as what happens when practical jokes produce gruesome consequences and initiations go awry.

Storytellers know — just as they have for hundreds and hundreds of years — that everyone enjoys a good, scary story!
Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories 3 joins his other popular collections of scary folklore to give readers spooky, funny and fantastic tales guaranteed to raise goose bumps.
Who is the Wolf girl? Why is a hearse filled with men with yellow glowing eyes? Can a nightmare become reality? How do you avoid an appointment with Death?

A collection of folk tales, legends, and myths involving the supernatural, from cultures around the world. Includes Irish, Russian, Japanese, Native American, Dutch, ancient Greek, Aztec, English, Chinese, Norse, Jewish, Welsh, Haitian, Kikuyu, Italian, and Indian stories, as well as an African American story from North Carolina.
