Hailey's Halloween

by Holli Conger (Illustrator), Lisa Bullard

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rachelle Andrade
Halloween is tomorrow and young Hailey has no idea what she will wear. As she moves through the costume store, trying on various outfits, Hailey tells the readers all about her favorite holiday. She dresses as a dinosaur and a monster as she explains Halloween's origin among the Celts as a celebration called Samhain. As Hailey dons a ghost sheet, she reveals the adoption of "All Hallow's Eve" as a church holiday. Pirate Hailey speaks of the Europeans who brought the holiday to North America on big ships. Keeping her final costume selection a secret until the end, Hailey and her parents carve a jack-o'-lantern in anticipation of the big day. Though this title from the "Cloverleaf Books—Fall and Winter Holidays" is classified as juvenile nonfiction, it has plenty of entertainment value for young readers. Children will enjoy the colorful and entertaining illustrations which accompany Hailey's browsing adventure. With a parent's help, youngsters may even want to try out the included recipe for "Make It Yourself: Face Paint!" Educational side notes provide information that could be useful in curriculum support, such as the origin of many of our present-day Halloween traditions. The glossary, index, and list of additional resources make this an excellent book for those just learning how to perform research. Hailey's story concludes with her big costume reveal as she goes trick-or-treating with her friends, and her Halloween spirit will surely be contagious. Reviewer: Rachelle Andrade
