Favorite Halloween Reads

I love this story about a witch named Gritch and her attempts to whip up some delicious piggy pie. She ends up having lunch with a wolf instead.









In this, the third installment of the Herdman's hijinx, Halloween is in jeopardy at Woodrow Wilson School!
















A wonderful book of silly poems about a horrendous, yet lovable Ogre.















I really enjoy sharing these and many other books with my students this time of year.

What are you reading these days?

    I'm reading "Shadrach" by Meindert DeJong with my son, and "Ralph S. Mouse" by Beverly Cleary with my other son. Then, with all the kids, I'm reading "Mountain Born" by Elizabeth Yates. Hooray for reading!

    The one major bonus of being a teacher is being able to read through all those wonderful books. Thanks for the book suggestions...I could spend a whole afternoon in the children's section of Barnes and Noble. I especially love a great illustrated story!

    What spooky looking reads- what I'm reading lately is a little less scary- baby signs (sign language for communicating with baby before they can speak).

    I just bought "Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots" for our ever growing library. I needed to cheer myself up yesterday & got that plus a white Mocha.

    Did wonders.

    I also bought a really fun book called Skippyjon Jones. It is about a Siamese cat that believes he is a chihuahua. We have a siamese cat that looks a lot like the character.

    So fun. I hope that our daughter loves books. I can't wait to read to her.

    Where is my Broom. That is Lilys favourite halloween story because it has pictures in the text so she can read it with me and she thinks she is really reading!

    I also like the Halloween book Jerry Seinfeld wrote a couple years ago. It so perfectly captured how kids feel about Halloween!

    Thanks for the great books! I love childrens books! I don't tell many people this (it will reveal how sad I am!) but I sometimes sit in a chair and read the children's books that someday I will read to my child...

    Heeheehee, "piggy pie" sounds so funny.

    I'm reading The Memory Keeper's Daughter. Mmm, not liking it very much yet...I'd rather read Piggy Pie! :)

    My son loves Teachers from the Black Lagoon. Very funny & the stories keep him reading.

    Thanks for the book reviews.

    In honor of Halloween, I brought in a collection of Stephen King novels for my grade eights and they are loving every word of them!

    Book, what are books? I seem to only have time to read blogs, how the heck does anybody have time to do anything else?

    What do you read one page of the book then one page of the blog.

    Do tell.
