Halloween Books To Read #2

We're Off To Find The Witch's House

We're Off to Find the Witch's House

"PreS-Gr. 2. Decked out in Halloween costumes, four little friends venture down the street to "the witch's house," deliciously scared by other young trick-or-treaters along the way. When they arrive at their destination, they hear a screech and see the witch herself. Evidently a friendly little witch (and probably a costumed classmate), she ushers them into her home for a Halloween party. Former kindergarten teacher Mr. Krieb shows that he knows a thing or two about holding children's attention in this rhyming, rhythmic text with call-and-response sections. With a multiracial cast of characters, Alley's child-friendly drawings glow with watercolor washes and brim with details that expand the narrative and add to the fun. Both verse and pictures will appeal to young children who like to be reassured as well as scared at Halloween." from Amazon

MY THOUGHTS:  Once again the girls loved this book as well. It might frighten some children that are easily scared, the illustrations are great. Another great Halloween book.
