t's never too early to think about
trick or treat
time! Golden BooksŪ has released a board book, die-cut in the shape of a pumpkin, orange and smiley, with goodies flowing out the top, and a handle rope to boot. A perfect read for the
age group, two and up.
ach page has a Halloween eve picture of a youngster on his neighborhood route. He meets
, who would like a snack from his goodies collection. The words are set in rhyme, beginning with '
I love trick-or-treating on Halloween. / It's the one day each year when monsters are seen. / A big hairy werewolf wants candy to eat, / so I look in my bag for a yummy treat.
uthor Melissa Arps and illustrator Hector Borlasca give special recognition to an October night, when all Trick or Treaters in costume present a scary or a friendly sight. It's a great lesson in sharing ... Boo! from me to you!
