Shivery Shades of Halloween


Shivery Shades of Halloween is a great way to introduce fun read aloud poetry to young readers and listeners. This book is perfect for the classroom, story time or just some fun home reading. It is a great way to talk about colors and relating them to Halloween makes it that much more fun. A non scary Halloween picture book for the toddler, preschool, and elementary.



summary:  A rollicking, rhyming Halloween romp–in every color!

What color is Halloween? Why, it’s as green as an “eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin,” Children will learn their colors as they follow a cute little creature on his adventure through haunted halls, moonlit forests . . . perhaps even a Halloween party! Jimmy Pickering’s stylized settings and adorable monsters add a blast of colorful creepy-crawliness that will make kids giggle. Who knew that learning colors could be such spooky fun?

This fun picture book was found through my libraries overdrive. Over the next 2 weeks plan to feature many Halloween picture and chapter books that are available now through your local library or book store.
