Halloween Books Part II

More Spooky Reads!
I think any holiday especially one as awesome as Halloween ( that’s my sweet tooth talking) is a fantastic catalyst for reading. Use your child’s excitement to get some learning in ! Here are three more fun Halloween Books.

“Dem Bones” by Bob Barner is sort of two books in one. The superficial layer uses the words of the ever popular old time spiritual with fun Halloween inspired skelleton illustrations. There is also a second layer that has longer text for older children that goes into the anatomy of the bones the song sings about. Great way to keep a Halloween theme strong while teaching about the human body!

” Maisy’s Halloween “ is a cute board book for toddlers that follows Maisy’s search for the right Halloween costume. There is something about this little mouse that children just love, it’s also a cute introduction about the fun we have dressing up for Halloween.

” Big Pumpkin” by Erica Silverman is a staple in most preschool classrooms. It’s a cute story about a witch who is desperate for pumpkin pie but her giant pumpkin is too big for her to pick up! Luckily she enlists the help of a ghost, vampire, mummy and bat and with a little teamwork they save the night! The rhyming text is almost like a song and kids love it!
