when the moon was bright,
Mouse crept around,
and this is what he found....
"Flit! Flit! Flit!" Something flying. "Rustle! Rustle! Rustle!" Something moving. "Creep! Creep! Creep!" Something sneaking. What can all these things be? Mouse finds out that first impressions can be misleading as, one by one, his fears are assuaged by the appearance of some not-so-scary things: swooping, smiling bats; pretty, tumbling leaves; and scampering kittens. Rich, autumnal colors, full of giant shadows and adorable critters, and rhythmic, repetitive, reassuring text by the creators of Mouse's First Christmas, add up to a gentle Halloween tale ideal for the very youngest trick-or-treater. With just the right balance of creepiness and lighthearted fun, Mouse's First Halloween is ideal for children who are not quite ready for the horrors and gore of some of the more bloodthirsty Halloween stories. Buket Erdogan's endearing illustrations are sure to put anyone in the right mood for the spookiest night of the year.

Each time the mouse gets frightened by a noise or a shadow or some other Halloween-related thing, there's a cute little (literally, written little) "Eek, mouse squeaked!" But the book goes through how each Halloween item, in and of itself isn't scary afterall (bats, jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows and more).
The final though is that it's fun to be "scared" on Halloween. I've seen child after child weighing the fun aspects of Halloween against the scary, and this book is a great way to help them come down on the side of fun. And even when it's not Halloween, each item offers a cute guessing game trying to figure out what the item is that my little 2-year old loved!

From an early age, each of my grandchildren loved this book and I cannot read it too many times to them. Of course, it helps when I make the sounds in the story.Published on October 2, 2013 by Carol Fickinger
My toddler really likes books that have repetitive lines. When I read it, I kind of turn it into a song and he loves to try to sing along with me. Read morePublished on September 3, 2013 by Taren Black
