We keep creepy Halloween in a box 11 months out of the year.
Come October, the ghosties & ghoulies, black cats & bats
are let out of the box.
We hammer tombstones into the yard dirt & place home-made pumpkins
of paper around the living room.
My daughter puts read-aloud Halloween books on a low table.
And she & her father stuff & dress a scarecrow who guards our yard. We will all
carve the pumpkin closer to the big evening.
What are your favorite Halloween titles? Once you read some of ours, these may become a grand part of
your Halloween bookshelf:
SIX CREEPY SHEEP by Judith Ross Enderle & Stephanie Gordon Tessler, with illustrations from John O’Brien
BAT JAMBOREE by Kathi Appelt, with illustrations by Melissa Sweet
THE LITTLE SCARECROW BOY by Margaret Wise Brown (yes, MWB herself, without a bunny in sight) and brought to a delightful modern art interpretation by David Diaz.
