Candy shouldn't be the only treat your kids get for Halloween. Another way to celebrate this spooky holiday is to read Halloween-themed books to them. Research from Kansas State University shows many of these books may help children confront their fears. "A book is a safe place to explore fear -- much, much safer than the real world," said Phil Nel, director of Kansas State University's graduate program in children's literature.

There are tons of books dedicated to this fun-filled holiday. Here, a roundup of not-so-scary Halloween books for the little ones.
