K-Gr 2 - "Over in the Meadow" gets a Halloween makeover in this picture book...Manning's muted blue-green, brown-orange illustrations fill the spreads with kid-friendly monsters. Libraries in need of monster-filled Halloween tales may consider this as an additional purchase - School Library Journal.
"In a gently spooky spin on "Over in the Meadow" that counts up to 10, various ghouls and beasts groan, swoop, and haunt. Jane has fun playing within the nursery rhyme’s parameters...Manning’s quirky and expressive monster families are 10 kinds of cute."—Publishers Weekly
"The classic counting rhyme 'Over in the Meadow' goes spooky in this Halloween riff, which should endure well past Oct. 31. Beginning with its opening 'big mommy monster / and her little monster one,' readers are rewarded with ample humor and wit. And there's a sweetness to the parental-offspring interactions in the playful, alliterative text."—New York Times Book Review

The illustrations, which include traditional Halloween characters as well as some fire-breathing dragons and howling wolves, are colorful and charming. They should not frighten even the most sensitive child.
This would make a good read-aloud for Halloween and an even better sing-aloud.
Just and FYI: This is a Halloween themed book. On the last two pages the mommy monster and her little monster go Trick-o-Treating. I wanted to mention that in case it isn't what some folks had in mind.
Another book that helped with his fear of monsters is "Goodnight, Little Monster" by Helen Ketteman.
It should come as no surprise that one of the holidays I loved the most as a child was Halloween. With it's costumes and of course, pillow cases full of candy, there was always something to look forward to. Now as a parent of two children who are suddenly getting very excited for this time of year, I'm feeling very nostalgic. Enough so that I may just have to grant Littlebug's wish of a witch costume...especially if it's one as cute as the witch's in Little Goblins Ten.
After a couple of readings of Little Goblins Ten the rhyming and sing-song sounds of the book came to life. Both Turkeybird and Littlebug can't help but point to each of the creatures on the page and attach names of people they know to each one. Primarily because we each need a costume, so why not? And the illustrations are fantastic, so it's easy to see how they would be drawn to each of the characters. Halloween can be a scary time for kids, but it's nice to see a picture book with beautiful illustrations that are still a little spooky, but not frightening to young kiddos.
Little Goblins Ten was yet another Pamela Jane hit in our home and I'm positive it will continue to be.Read more ›
