Monday Children’s Book Reviews for October 22, 2012

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson

Are Halloween stories always scary? NO!

“Having dropped her wand, bow and hat while flying through the sky, the witch is elated when three helpful animals find and return her possessions, so she welcomes their request for a ride on her magical broom, and they repay her kindness by rescuing her from a dragon.”            [JPB Donaldson]

Halloween by Laura Marsh

“From visiting the pumpkin patch, to bobbing for apples, to picking out a favorite costume, Halloween is a magical time for young children. The fun and festivities are captured in this book, with full-color illustrations and simple text.”            [JE 428.6 MARSH]

A Halloween Cookbook: Simple Recipes for Kids by Sarah L. Shuette

“Hungry for some ghoulishly good Halloween treats? You won’t need ghostly help to conjure up these snacks. In just a few simple steps, you can make Jack-o-Lantern Juice, Crunchy Spiders, and much more. So get on your broomstick, and get in the kitchen! Snack time will never be the same.”    [J641.568 SCHUETTE]

  1. I LOVE Room on a Broom. It is a tradition to read it every year, even though my son is older now. I am reading it to my K-2nd grade students this week. 🙂

    Yes! Room on a Broom is brilliant! My kids get their Halloween book fix at school this time of year, they ask for some regular books when they get home in the afternoon! They recently always seem to ask for A Mango in the Hand by Antonio Sacre. Written in proverbs which generates loads of conversation at bedtime! We picked it up at If you have some time, check it out I would love to hear what you think! Keep up the good work, will be checking back for some great recommendations for the upcoming Holidays!
