Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-- Rightfully spare, this board book introduces very young children to the barest of Halloween traditions: carving jack-o'-lanterns, making black cats, putting on costumes, trick-or-treating, and returning home to a Halloween party. Full-color paintings feature a Caucasian family of six, each child sporting either the mother's straight red hair or the father's curly dark locks; the party guests are multiracial. The book is perfect for toddler story times, and patrons will snap it up. --Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA

This is the seond time I purchased the "my first" series of books by Tomie DePaola. I purchased the first series alomost 3 years ago for my grandson and now I am purchasing another series for my grand dauther. This time there were 2 new books "my first angel and my first fairytale". I would recommend this series to anyone and it makes a lovely gift when paired with my first bibs, t'shirts, which I have done. Christine

Very good for the first halloween. Fun to read with granddaughter and laugh. She hadn't a clue what it was about, but really loved the cover and the attention she got for playing with it. Somehow all my grand children love pumpkins! The bright orange pumpkin is just the thing to get little hands grabbing for the book.
