Halloween Book Review: The Family That Plays Together

Ninja! Attack of the Clan by Arree Chung

The family that plays together, stays together! This family likes to play Ninja games and the book ends with a wonderful image of everyone in the family wearing home-made ninja costumes, complete with spatula weapons, while playing ‘ninja’. Everything that is good and fun about Halloween is summed up in that one image.

Suggestions for Building Excitement Over The Holidays

Ordering Books: Whether you are building a family library or simply looking for a fun way to build-up to the Halloween celebration, having brand new books shipped to your home, in your child’s name, is a great way to do it. To a child, it is super exciting to receive a package in the mail, addressed to them! They may even want to read their brand-new book immediately AND before bed.

Library Holds: If you’d prefer to review the books before buying them, or need to maintain a tight budget, then use the local library. Go to the library website, locate the book and place it on hold. When the notification arrives, bring the child along and let them help find the books in the on-hold shelves.

Halloween Book Review: Smiling Dinos

Amazon.com

T. Rex Trick-or-Treats, written by Lois G. Grambling and illustrated by Jack E. Davis
T-Rex wants to wear a scary costume but he just can’t decide which one! Eventually, he goes trick-or-treating with his friends without much of a costume at all and is rather sad. Then, toward the end of the evening, he smiles his T-Rex smile and terrifies everyone! The moral of this story is simply this: Stop worrying and have fun!

This is a fun book for kids who love dinosaurs. A quote can be found here.
