As we head into the Halloween season families, libraries and educators need good books to entice young readers and this is right up that alley. The simple and brightly colored images are easy for the younger set to enjoy and the dual language is a great way to help either Spanish speakers or English speakers work on the other language. The only exception to that is the lessons at the end of the story are only in English.

Word repetition will help drive in those language skills. The colors and shapes in the illustrations provide further teaching lessons and are eye catching enough to hold those small attention spans. The Reading Reinforcement lessons at the end will help provide ideas on how to reinforce the lessons from the story. The story itself provides some great activity ideas you can do with your child to have fun during the season such as raking leaves, picking out pumpkins, decorating a pumpkin, baking and more.

It’s perfectly written for the intended audience and making education fun is always a plus! 5/5 stars
