Non Scary Halloween story for Preschool aged
on September 18, 2008
This story is told in repetitive verse which tends to capture the attention of young children. It is similar in structure to "the house that Jack built", where each sentence repeats and then builds upon the previous sentence to tell the story. This story follows Emily as she gets dressed in her costume for Halloween.
Overall, the sing-songy kind of rhyme was good, and the illustrations were colorful and fun, but the story itself didn't hold much excitement for my 4yo. We borrowed this from the library, and it only got one read before we returned it.
For a book with a similar story format but more of an interesting plot, I would recommend "Inside a House That Is Haunted" by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and Tedd Arnold.
