ADORABLE! This book does a great job of giving a hint of the spooky and then explaining it away. I loved that every inch of the pages was colored, so it's really a colorful treat for the kids.

I loved this book mainly because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and this book really gets you into the spirit! I loved how this wasn't only an alphabet book, but it was also sort of a poetry book. Because of that, this book can be read (and enjoyed) by beginning readers who are trying to learn their ABCs, and older children who enjoy poems (or Halloween). If I end up teaching younger children, I would love to have this book in my classroom library.
Halloween is a staple in American culture, although I was told it was unacceptable to read to my Pre-K class due to negative religious connotations. I personally do not believe that this book touches on anything of the sort. It is a well written, creatively illustrated, and tastefully presented alphabet book about a commercialized Halloween holiday. This book could be used for teaching the alphabet as well as rhyming sounds and words.
