I prefer the non-spooky costumes to the spooky ones.

Even better, why not dress up to portray a favorite character from a book? In our homeschool, we have read most of the books listed below. Do you need some inspiration? Take these ideas, plus a quick search on Pinterest, and you should be good to go!
