Ghosts and goblins and spooks ... oh my! Last year, about this time, I was thinking of candy. This year my Halloween post is leaning towards the otherworldly. I found some wonderful books for Halloween that include a set of eerie ghost stories, a haunted house with some rather funny occupants, and an early reader to help kids get control of their Halloween frights!
So here is to some fun and ghoulish reading as we get closer to the most frightful holiday of all!
Title: Princess Posey and the Monster Stew
Author: Stephanie Greene
Target: Kindergarten - Grade 2
What this book is about:
Just in time for Halloween, Princess Posey takes on a new challenge. Halloween can be scary when you are in first grade - frightful costumes, creepy treats and trick or treating in the dark - as Posey discovers. Can she find a way to overcome her fears and really enjoy the holiday? (I hate to be a spoiler but ... surprise ... she gets over her fears)
Why I love this book:
I really enjoy the Princess Posey series for girls. It takes on some of the real issues that concern first-graders, even though they may not feel as serious to an adult. Posey is always well written and the illustrations are charming.
Who this book is for:
Girls just starting chapter books will like Posey. The chapters are not long, and although there are not pictures on every page, they are plentiful throughout the story.
Spot-on early chapter book for girls.
