The fun of Halloween comes alive in this beautifully illustrated children’s book. The drawings, done each year by the author on the eve of Halloween, follow various Halloween characters as they prepare to celebrate this mystical holiday — pumpkins, witches, bats, ravens, black cats, scarecrows, spiders, ghosts, and more. Should they have their party in the graveyard or the pumpkin patch? Should they dress up or simply go as themselves? Take a ride on the witch’s broom and enter the pumpkin for a magical trip both you and your kids will not soon forget. Pre-K through 6th.
My Comments: This is a great Fall/Halloween book to read to children or for them to read on their own. What definitely sold the book for me were the illustrations! They are gorgeous! It’s also a great rhyming book. I love reading rhyming books to my second graders because they have to listen. I will usually pause and let them fill in the rhyming word. The book also covers all aspects of Fall/Halloween. The book has text on one side and illustrations on the next. I’m considering using one or more of the illustrations as descriptive writing assignments, which we will be working on in October. I appreciate that this books can be used for multiple reasons. This is a great resource.
I have an e-copy from NetGalley, but I think I need a hard copy as well. Thanks NetGalley and Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. for the review copy. The opinions and ideas are completely my own.
