Age of Child: Started reading with 6-year-old child.
Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter loves this book, particularly the pages in the back where she can give the creatures names and then add her own events to the story.
Adult Reader Reaction: We were surprised. We thought this might be a little bit stilted, but it is fun to read ... and to listen to our daughter's tales. We also like the fact that many of her Level 1 sight words comprise the story, making it easy to practice reading.
Pros: This seasonal picture book is great for pre-readers and early readers. The format also encourages listeners to create their own stories.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. This is definitely worth your time, and is perfect for creating special reading memories with the kids.
Educational Themes: The story is really about Halloween, but it is perfect for helping new readers gain confidence with sight words, and all readers/listeners to use their imagination and create their own stories.
Notes: The publisher will donate at least 50% of the profits from this book to improving children's education in Mexico.
