My absolutely favorite book as a child was Gus, The Friendly Ghost by Jane Thayer. My mom ordered it for me from The Weekly Reader Book Club. Every month or so they sent me books. I loved it when the package showed up! I can remember only three of the titles* I got way back then....and two are permanent residents of my Keeper Shelf.

Imagine my total surprise (and very happy reaction!) when I discovered just last week that Gus had a series! His adventures didn't stop with Gus, The Friendly Ghost!

This book is about a ghost that may get kicked out of his house because the family that inhibits it is wanting to move. The ghost has nowhere to go and cannot just go to a new house. The story is about his struggles of trying to scare away the people trying to tear down the house and his ultimate accomplishment of getting them out and getting to stay in the house. I would use this book in a classroom to talk about what makes a place feel at home to us and why.

What's a Ghost To Do? is a fun little story about a friendly Ghost, Gus, who is being forced out of his house he has lived in his whole life. The book is great to use as a read aloud with guided predictions throughout the story. It is also great to read around Halloween!
