Top Customer Reviews
The rhyming and repetitive text are so much fun to read and she's memorized it so we say it together as we read. The illustrations are really colorful and detailed, so much so that every time we read it, we notice new details in the pictures. I bought some white gloves and used fabric paint to make a face on each glove finger to make the 10 timid ghosts. We each wear a glove and as each ghost gets scared off, we put one finger down to act out the story. My daughter loves this interactive element I've added; we even read this to her pre-k class and they loved it, especially with the "ghost gloves" I added (see photo). The story teaches subtraction in a way by counting downwards as each ghost flees. We've read it at least 25 times since I bought it and it never gets old. Fun and cute book for Halloween!
In addition to the cute story and fun rhymes, We've started using this book to help our 3yo count, identify numerals, and do very rudimentary math. He identifies the large number on each page, counts the ghosts on each page, and then we discuss if there are X ghosts, how many will there be when one leaves? It's a great tool in addition to being a great story.
