If you like the Little Blue Truck Series, this one is the perfect read for Halloween! Great for young children starting at toddlers.
is a fun and enjoyable read. It is not a scary monster book but rather deals with fear of monsters in children, as Winifred tries to set various traps to get rid of those monsters.
is a fun classic!! It is full of funny skeletons that are perfect for Halloween.
is a book about the main Halloween fruit: the pumpkin! It covers the life cycle of the pumpkin, different varieties of pumpkins and how to grow your own. My boys love pumpkins and love this book.
is another skeleton book, but this time, non-fiction. It is very informative, and provides information and what bones are and how they work. It also has lots of human and animal skeletons with comparisons. Great book to learn for preschoolers.
carries a very different lesson. It is about a newly arrived immigrant family. While the children embrace Halloween, Mama takes a bit more time to accept it but eventually steps outside her comfort zone for her children. The images capture the feeling of the characters in the story. Lots of great discussions to have in that book for children 5+.
is another pumpkin book. But this one is all about counting, math and science. It even explores skip counting for Elementary children.
My boys love bats (and me too) and we love Nicola Davies. The illustrations are vivid and accurate plus the book is full of good information. Great for Kindergartners and up.
Another Julia Donaldson book I have read at least a 100 times! My 4 year old loves it! It is fun, the drawings are beautiful as usual and the story is all about friendship.
is a story about a Little Old Lady who is actually a bit scared but pushes past her fears. It is repetitive which young children love and all ages starting at 2 will enjoy the book.
