GHOST EATS IT ALL (Little Boo! Books)

Author: Janee Trasler

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: LB Kids, Little, Brown and Company, ©2006

Material: hard cover

Summary: Ghost is hungry, but so is his monster friend. When ghost eats everything and monster gets nothing, monster finds a way to get his share, too. This is a seasonal picture book.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, anytime reading, read aloud book, learning to read

Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8

Interest Level: 1 to 3

Age of Child: Read with 4½-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: We only needed to read this one once, then our kindergartner was "reading" it independently.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a cute, simple picture book for toddlers and preschoolers. We're glad our child likes reading it him/herself!

Pros: The story will make toddlers and preschoolers giggle. The sentences are short and the illustrations sufficiently that pre-readers will start "reading" the book themselves in no time.

Cons: None, really.

Borrow or Buy: Definitely Borrow. The shelf-life of this one is pretty limited, both for its seasonal nature and the target audience.

Educational Themes: With a little bit of stretching you can draw out the sharing-with- friends or eating-in-front-of-others elements to the story. Mostly, though, it's just a picture book.

Literary Categories: Fiction - picture book, holiday, humor
