Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
This easy to read story about Halloween shows children how facing their fears can prove to be thrilling. Jamie is having a party at her house for Halloween. All of her friends are there. They decide to go to a fun house; however, her friend Hannah is afraid. Jamie convinces Hannah to go in the fun house. They see all sorts of scary things inside the fun house. Jamie reassures Hannah that everything is fake throughout the entire experience. At the end, Hannah decides that she enjoyed it so much that she wants to go again. This book is meant to use words that are frequently used in the English language so that the reader can recognize and read the story alone. The pictures go well with the story and are relatable to children. Children will enjoy reading this story, because at one time, they have probably felt scared or hesitant about something. The children will enjoy reading about what might happen if they go to a Halloween party. This is part of the "Ready to Read: Robin Hill School" series. Reviewer: Rachel Miller

This solid addition to the series features a party at Jamie's house where "All the first graders came." Multicultural classmates are dressed in ghost, robot, and elevator costumes and have mixed responses to the Haunted House with a spider web, plastic spider, and bowl full of "goopy worms...in Jell-O." The simple text and familiar theme supports emerging readers and rewards them with a satisfying plot twist and surprise. Gordon's vibrantly colored illustrations give plenty of visual clues for decoding the text and treats of wonderful costumes and party decorations, and add suspense with background shading. Beginning readers will also enjoy Paulette Bourgeois' Franklin's Pumpkin (Kids Can, 2005), Lisa Thiesing's A Dark and Noisy Night (Dutton, 2005), and Hans Wilhelm's I'm Not Scared! (Scholastic, 2005).-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
