13 Days of Halloween

Product Description

“On the first day of Halloween my good friend gave to me: a vulture in a dead tree.”

Children will love to sing along!

Everyone knows “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” but are you ready for The Thirteen Days of Halloween? In this delightfully offbeat story, a dashing ghoul tries to win his ghostly love’s heart with heaps of hilarious gifts ranging from broomsticks and bats to cauldrons and cats! Carol Greene’s lively verse is perfectly complemented by Tim Raglin’s enchantingly erie illustrations. Children of all ages will love to sing along. The result is a frightfully funny Halloween tale you’ll never forget.

Carol Greene wrote her first poem when she was six years old (it was about a spider). To date she has published over a hundred books for children. Carol also likes to read, sing, and make teddy bears. She lives in Webster Groves, Missouri, with her cat Dulcie.

Tim Raglin brings his wacky imagination and wonderfully odd cast of characters to The Thirteen Days of Halloween. His previous books include Five Funny Fights, Pecos Bill, and The Birthday ABC. He received a silver medal from the New York Society of Illustrators for his book Uncle Mugsy & the Terrible Twins of Christmas. Mr. Raglin lives in his hometown of Independence, Kansas.

My Review: My second grade class had a blast with this book!  It is always a good sign when I put this book in the front of the room for them to look at after I read it and they race up to see who can get to it first during free time!  The children love the words, they love the illustrations, and they love singing it!  The illustrations are great and they support the text well.  The Thirteen Days of Halloween is a very fun Halloween read!

    My boys LOVED this book. I actually had to hide it because my four year old would BEG me to read it to him every night! I’ll bring it out again as we get a little closer to Halloween!
