momstown loves tying in literacy with fun - so in the spirit of Halloween excitement, here are some great books to share with you child this season!
Where is Baby’s Pumpkin? by Karen Katz
Lift the flap, touch and feel book. The baby is looking for her special pumpkin, and finds all kinds of other Hallowe’en things along the way (bats, ghosts, candy apples).
Froggy’s Hallowe’en by Jonathan London
Froggy is distracted. At home his mother has to remind him to do his homework, and at school his teacher chides him for not paying attention. But how can he? Halloween is next week and he must come up with a great costume. Froggy has a lot of spooky thoughts on his mind, that's for sure; little does he know just how scary his Halloween will be!
The Great Hallowe’en Treat by Suzy-Jane Tanner
Trick or treat—it’s Halloween! Join in the fun and follow the trick-or-treaters as they go from house to house. But will they find tricks or treats behind each door? Each door ‘opens’ to reveal a festive, funny surprise.
It’s Hallowe’en Night by Maryann Cocca-Leffler
Special windows cut in holiday shapes give sneak peeks at the Halloween surprises ahead as two brave little kittens, Rascal and Rosie, go trick-or-treating.
Fancy Nancy Halloween or Bust
Jane O'Connor captures the spirit of Halloween and the creativity of costume design. The book is different than a typical Fancy Nancy book with an extensive vocabulary, but she does throw in a couple of "fancy" words such as "bonbons", "unique" and "disastrous". The best part of this book is the ending. We loved decorating a new costume for Fancy Nancy at the end!
