Halloween is right around the corner, and what better way to have some fun, than enjoying some fantastic books with your children. Read on to learn more!
The Ghosts Go Scaring
Happy Halloween from Sky Pony Press! They bring you the adorable book The Ghosts Go Scaring. Author Chrissy Bozik and illustrator Patricia Storms created this cute Halloween book. The story is set to the tune of “The Aunts Go Marching,” so once your youngsters learn this book, it will be a great Halloween sing along. Children will enjoy looking at the pictures, identifying all the costumes in the ghost march, and looking for spooky hidden objects, and ghostly silhouettes.
Liam loved this book, and decided that it would be best enjoyed by our local Head Start Program. I agree, I think preschools and kindergarten classes would very much enjoy this precious book. To get one for your kids or your class, head HERE.
I Want to Eat Your Books
Zombies are all the rage. (Our family personally thinks they are the coolest!) But did you know that zombies can be cute? Or not so scary? Well, in I Want to Eat Your Books, the zombie is both. Author Karin Lefranc turns something scary into something adorable! The zombie in this story doesn’t want to hurt anyone, it just wants to eat some books! Tyler Parker’s illustrations are so bright and colorful. Kids will adore this book! Don’t take our word for it, get a copy and see for yourself! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
Brunhilda’s Backwards Day
Okay, before I even read this book to Liam, I loved it! The cover has a sparkly iradescence and the witch and her cat are so well drawn. I adore it!
Brunhilda LOVES to make trouble. She gets up on the wrong side of the bed every day, eats spiders for breakfast and brushes her teeth with candy! She then continues on with her day, spreading misery and casting spells. But one day, her kitty cat makes trouble instead. The next day Brunhilda wakes up on the RIGHT side of her bed. Instead of her witchy dress, she wears a pink ball gown. Instead of eating spider for breakfast, she eats oatmeal! And instead of brushing with candy, she uses toothpaste! Her day is completely opposite compared to most days.
This books teaches kids that being nice and kind to others actually feels good. It’s more rewarding than being nasty. And it makes others feel nice too! Shawna J.C Tenney has written a Halloween story, with a heart warming lesson. Preschool to kindergarten kids will benefit from Brunhilda’s Backwards Day.
