Children's Literature
A very green witch with a wart on her nose, bat earrings and long red fingernails has decided to move into a haunted house. The ten timid ghosts who are the current occupants are chased away, one by one. When all have vacated the premises, they decide to take a stand and don't they give that witch a fright. The story and amusing pictures will help kids count down from ten. They will also have fun finding and counting the ghosts on each page and looking for the nasty old witch who is always there—although sometimes she may be a little hard to find. For young kids who crave just a little scare, this book will be a good choice and great fun for Halloween. 2000, Cartwheel/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 7, $3.25. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

This is an all time favorite book for my three year old daughter -- fun one to read too! Very interactive, as she finds all the ghosts and counts them.

I was asked to read a story for Halloween to my daughter's first grade class. This book was absolutly perfect. It was so easy for the children to follow. An added bonus was that I had the children act out the book with me and at the end of the book they got to yell 'BOO' really loud to scare their teacher (who was the witch). I really loved this book and the teacher kept saying she really liked it as well. I'm planning on picking up a copy of the book for her to read to her class next year.

The Ten Timid Ghosts books are 2 of my favorites to read to children! The rhyming and the counting are excellent for the kids. The kids enjoy counting along with you and I hear them go around and recite sentences from the book. Gives kids the idea that ghosts aren't so scary!
