Starting off, for the youngest kids are some adorable seasonally-inspired board books including In a Spooky Haunted House ($12.99) by Joel Stern, an author my family happens to know personally since he was my son's first origami teacher.

($12.99), written and illustrated by the popular New York Times bestselling duo Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin who brought us Farmer Brown and his animal friends to young children's literature.
