I would use this book in my classroom to talk about halloween in my classroom. I can use it to talk about how sometimes parents fight and how it makes the students feel and what we can do to make ourselves feel better in those situations.

I read this book with my whiz kid and thought it was great. Kids can relate to this character because she talks about her parents fighting and how that upsets her. Plus, the story was just fun and realistic.
