Book Talk Tuesday

I’m linking up with Mrs. Jump’s Class for Book Talk Tuesday.  I love Halloween books, but my favorites are all pretty well known – The Little Old Lady Who Was not Afraid of Anything, It’s Pumpkin Time, and Room on the Broom are all great books, but I really want to share new books with you.

Spooky is a board book from Roger Priddy, and while you may not recognize his name, his books are staples in infant, toddler, and preschool classrooms. Spooky is a touch and feel picture book that includes both simple illustrations and lifelike photographs.  It is a great way to introduce very young children to Halloween, and all of the words and images associated with it.

I love this book so much that I bought it for my nephew’s first Halloween last year – and any teacher knows that the mark of a good book is that you’ll buy it for your classroom AND your family members!

Make sure to stop over at Mrs. Jump’s Class and check out some other great book suggestions!
