    Stories for Children 5 star Rating

    Synopsis: On a dark and windy Halloween night, a young boy makes his way home from trick-or-treating. As he walks through the woods, he hears a strange voice whisper in his ear:
    CRACKLETY-CLACK, BONES IN A SACK. THEY COULD BE YOURS-IF YOU LOOK BACK.

    The faster the boy runs, the louder the voice gets. He spots a bat in a tree and skeletons dancing in a nearby field. Have the woods come to life, or is it just his imagination? With hidden images to find and a refrain that encourages readers to change along, this engaging book is perfect for sharing at Halloween or on any dark, windy night.

    Overall thoughts: This is a perfect prose for a Halloween themed read aloud, especially if it's a cold windy night. My five year old daughter had me read this to her twice every night for the last week. The illustrations are packed with ghostly shapes, monster changing clouds and other hidden images for children to find. There wasn't a single page where my daughter didn't find a spooky haunt.

    I won't give away the ending, but it has a nice twist at the end. Kids will laugh when moon reveals the true picture of what they thought was following them and the young boy in the dark.

    What I love about this book is the not too scary for young readers storyline. Yet, it's one story every child and adult can relate to when they are out alone in the dark and cold of the night.
