My favorite Halloween books are more giggles than goosebumps. High-interest illustrations are a must. Here are three that I don't mind reading over and over all month...
"The Witch Who Lives Down The Hall" by Donna Guthrie.
A little wordy for preschoolers, but perfect for the elementary crowd. I got it for .95 from Scholastic and have loved reading it aloud for years.
My kids do NOT like Sesame Street, but they love this book. Who doesn't?
Any book by Eve Bunting is a favorite! My mom gave this one to Jake, because it's about a frightened little boy with the same name. Could be a reassuring bedtime favorite all year long!
And now the mysteries...
Two of my all-time favorite Halloween books are out of print. Maybe you friends can help me find them? The first is "Fly Fly Witchy"--I used it as a reading teacher, and the kids loved to sing the words. Also, remember "The Goblins'll Get Ya Eff Ya Don't Watch Out"? The old spooky poem about Little Orphan Annie. Mom? It's not even on Amazon. Who wrote it? I'd love a copy!
