Halloween Reading: Picture Books!

Here is one of my favorite book lists, and I offer it just in time for Halloween. If you are concerned about Halloween books being too scary for your preschooler, this list of picture books may be just what you need. The reviewer is a mom, and she has annotated each book so you can get a sense of whether it sounds right for your child. Here is the link:

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
