halloween night.

by @according2kelly on October 25, 2011

our favorite new read is marjorie dennis murray’s halloween night….

’twas halloween night, & all through the house
every creature was stirring, including the mouse;
the wall were aflutter with little brown bats,
while hordes of black spiders crept out of the cracks.
by the fire in the kitchen, the witch stirred her brew;
to make it more smelly, she threw in a shoe.

reminiscent of the well-known “night before christmas”, this book details the goings-ons & halloween preparations of a haunted house & it’s inhabitants. my boys love the incredible illustrations & get a kick out ogre & olaf, the twin ogre brothers. halloween night will definitely put in the halloween spirit. & if your family is anything like ours, you too will be reading it night after night after night.

My kids will LOVE this! And we even have a bookstore gift card that is begging to be used :)

We love "Room on the Broom." My favorite part is when the dragon says his favorite food is witch with French fries. And he says "just this once, I'll have witch without fries."

that's another one of our favorites... along with the classic "goodnight goon"
