We're getting into the home stretch of the Halloween season. Only ten days to go! Hope you have your pumpkins carved and your pillow cases ready to collect all of that candy loot. My nine year old is infamous for waiting until the last minute to decide what he wants his costume to be. He still hasn't told me what he wants, and I know I am going to be left scrambling!
Today's pick for good Halloween reads will get the giggle train rolling for your preschool readers and maybe your older readers too. Skeleton Hiccups has knock-out illustrations by S.D. Schindler and quite a humorous story to go along with them. Mr. Skeleton gets the hiccups and goes through all of the wives tale ways to get rid of them - holding his nose (or lack of one) while drinking water, holding his breath, being surprised. It takes being scared by his friend Mr. Ghost to finally give those pesky hiccups the boot.
