We found a new favorite Halloween book this year! The 13 Days of Halloween by Carol Greene is a fun and silly read that is perfect for celebrating the season. It's a Halloween book written in the style of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Perfect for a read-aloud and sure to solicit many, many giggles.
The book follows this lovely, green lady and her gentleman friend as he attempts to give her a new gift for every day. He starts with a vulture in a dead tree and the gifts get sillier each day ending on the thirteenth day when the lady gives her gentleman friend a gift.
Grab the kids for a fun read-aloud, or even better, sing the book! Pretty soon the kids will be joining along... if they can stop giggling. I know we'll be reading this book many more times before Halloween.
