Autumn is here and the foliage is starting to change colors. It also means the kickoff to the holiday season, starting with Thanksgiving in Canada and of course, the eeriest day ever, Halloween.
Double double toil and trouble! Fire burn and cauldron bubble!
To get into the spirit of things, many families enjoy decorating their homes and yards and gorging on Halloween movies and spooky tales that will fill their souls with bloodcurdling fear. While some dive right into the horror, terror, and thriller aspects, many prefer soft scare sources. I think most parents feel this way, especially if they have babies and toddlers in their homes. A great way to introduce young children to Halloween is through storybooks. If you have children in your home ages three and under, then you will love Countdown to Halloween.
Countdown to Halloween is an interactive board book for babies and toddlers. Exploding with the excitement of Halloween, young children will learn to down from the number ten. Each page counts down how many days until Halloween and asks kids a question. They will be asked to find a specific number of Halloween-related items. They will go through mazes, go for a hay ride and even bob for apples. With so many awesome and colorful things to observe, kids will have a blast trying to find all the hidden objects.
The images are bright, colorful and inviting. Plus, there are so many unexpected surprises that will excite young readers. The pages are busy with so much activity that they make reading and learning an enjoyable and fun activity they kids can look forward to. It’s the perfect book to introduce Halloween to young kiddos.
