A rollicking, rhyming Halloween romp--in every color!
What color is Halloween? Why, it's as green as an "eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin," as white as "cobwebs clinging, a misty trail, a skull, a spook, a face gone pale . . ."

This will be awesome for Halloween story times. Love the phrasing and descriptions of the colors. The illustrations are also more cute then scary but still shows monsters and "creepy" things.
Poetic text finds sights and sounds in every color of the rainbow to celebrate the Halloween season. Digital artwork. Nice read aloud for PreK-2.
What fun! This book is a great read-aloud. Each two-page spread focuses on a color. The first half of the rhyme deals mostly with nouns associated with Halloween of the particular color while the second half of the rhyme gives a wonderful list of adjectives that describe the color. For example, my favorite is the very first one:
Evil glow

Evil grin

Vile brew

Clammy skin

Slimy-grimy, queasy-peasy, snotty-rotty

Tinge of green.

Shivery Shades of Halloween is perfect for classrooms and libraries. U...more

I think this would be too long for toddler time if you read every word on the page but it could be adapted for a younger audience.

A great concept that did not follow through with its potential. Perhaps it is the cartoonish digital illustrations?
Perfectly rhyme-y with just the right amount of spook for kids learning their colors.

This fantastic read aloud explores all the colors little readers will encounter in their Halloween adventures through bright, colorful illustrations and memorable rhyme. SHIVERY SHADES OF HALLOWEEN is a worthwhile addition to your library and great holiday fun!
