My 3 year old son loved this book. We read it for about a month leading up to Halloween, so he really understood the concept of the "Switch Witch" and was excited to be able to leave her his bag of candy (with a few choice ones picked out) and receive a gift the next day. While you could just tell your child that they could trade their candy for some kind of gift without the story, it really added a bit of magic and fun to the whole transaction. I would highly recommend it for those who don't want their kids gorging on candy for the days following Halloween.

This was a cute book with the story of the switch witch. Just what I was looking for to help my 3 year old with switching out his Halloween candy. Some things to note, if this is important to you:

The story talks about getting to pick 3 pieces before switching. You could change this to your own plans, but that is the story's version

Witch uses her magic to transform the candy into something to promote your imagination (I had been concerned that she would be 'taking' the candy away. Using magic made it more 'magical' of an experience.

It talks about eating too much candy making you tired and sick.

Would recommend for anyone wanting to add this imaginative character to their child's holiday beliefs.

This book is a must read after trick or treating to share a creative way to convince your kiddos that the candy must go... The story and illustrations will perfectly explain the story of the Switch Witch and how Children can switch with the witch. Trick-or-Treating finished up around 8 on Monday night. The kids each had about four choices of candy then and I kindly added candy in their lunch boxes for Tuesday. When they arrived home on Tuesday from school, the snack of the day was... CANDY! After dinner, more candy... Today will follow the exact same pattern until this mommy says... "STOP, that is quite enough". I would like my kiddos to keep their healthy bodies and my five year old just had a cavity filled... Plus mommy and daddy tend to do some picking when the kiddos go to bed. Those fun size bars really aren't so fun when you find that just one is never enough. I struggle keeping weight off and do much better if I cannot have access to the junk in my house. So, tonight is the night we will read the book and begin the tradition of the Switch Witch. We will read the Switch Witch story and they will pick out 15 pieces of candy from their loot. The rest will be left out for the witch to switch with a toy. When they awake in the AM the candy will be gone and replaced with a toy. The book makes the process of switching with the witch more exciting and easier to understand for the kiddos.

We read this a LOT throughout October and after scoring huge on Halloween candy, we let our (almost) 3 year old select his 3 favorite pieces and put the rest on the porch next to his lit jack o lantern and in the morning ran down to see his new toy!

I'm excited about ordering this book. My 10 year old daughter is newly diagnosed with sudden and severe corn allergies. Having never previously been allergic to anything, this Halloween promises to be rough for her. She had not previously ever been 'not able' to have candy. It's her favorite holiday. With that being said, I needed to think of a way to break it to her that her days of eating anything with corn syrup, high fructose corn, corn anything are long over. The Switch Witch is the perfect answer. I am buying her a really cool gift (from the Switch Witch) so that she'll be far from heartbroke over abandoning candy and all of its' allergy triggering properties. I love the idea of her giving up her candy, but yet getting something else to help ease the heartbreak of no candy. I'm excited about this book. Can't wait til it arrives. I understand there are far worse problems in the world. However, right now she can eat five foods, period. And this has been going on for 9 weeks. It's hard for her mentally. No more cupcakes, bday food at parties, etc. So this book coming along for us at this time is a God send.

I read a poem about the Switch Witch and thought getting a book would be a great way to teach the concept to my daughter. This book is terribly written and not fun at all for a little one to read. I'm going to put the book away and just stick with the cute little poem.
