Scary Bits - But not Too Scary !
October is ripe for harvesting spooky tales. For young kids, cautionary tales can work instead of "sca-a-ry" tales, since the endings come out GOOD. Try:
Precious and The Boo Hag by Patricia McKissack
The Gunniwolf by Wilhelmina Harper.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything by Linda Williams.
... or choose books with holiday icons such as:
I Spy A Pumpkin
Five Little Pumpkins
Los Gatos Black On Halloween
