Very disappointed! Pictures are very small & some pages had no pictures at all. Not an enjoyable format for my two-year-old. Regretting the purchase!

My son came home from school sick today. I thought he might like to cuddle up with mom and read a story. That always seems to help a little.We read Franklin's Halloween. I had downloaded it from netgalley and wanted to read it with my eight year old. I love to see what they think. I know what I like in a children's story: great pictures, humor, a lesson, phonetics....etc. Kids mostly want a good story and to see the pictures. I asked him what he thought and he said it was good. I asked him if other kids would like this book and he said "yes." Ok, no elaboration here, but what can I expect? He's laying in his bed with a bowl close by. He did say that his favorite part was they mysterious ghost.My thoughts are that this book is really cute. I love Franklin. The stories are always well illustrated and have a solid plot. Franklin's dilemma was what to be for Halloween. The fun part was when there was a mystery concerning a ghost. At the end everyone is happy and had a great Halloween. Cute and sweet book that has all of the key elements of a good story. Not too scarey for little ones either.I definitely recommend this book to sit and cuddle with your favorite trick-or-treater.

Franklin and his friends have a great time getting candy and playing games at the Halloween party. Franklin goes as Franklinstein, and thinks the ghost there is his friend, Bear. When he finds out Bear's home sick, he wonders who the ghost is, but realizes it must be Mr. Owl. Everyone shares a little bit of candy with Bear; they've had a wonderful night.

Franklin is such a cute character. It's fun to guess the costume he'll make and try to figure out who is in each of the costumes. Most of all, we enjoyed the ghost story! This is suitable for all ages and shouldn't be a problem for Christians who don't 'do' Halloween. *This book was loaned to me for my honest review.

Before I became a mother I did not know who Franklin was. But now with two young boys in my house we are all well aware of Franklin and all the shenanigans he and his animal friends get into. We love him and all his pals. The lessons that these book teach are ones that my children and I can relate to. As a teacher of preschool aged children I find that the influence that literature has on the children to be great. One must be selective what literature children get exposed to because it can make the difference between a child becoming a lifelong reader and one that is not. I base entire lesson plans around one great book. Franklin books draw children in my classroom into the story. The stories have unique characters with distinct personalities. There is always a lesson to be learned and a topic worth discussing. I am a huge fan of the Franklin series. In Franklin's Halloween, Franklin gets to dress up with his friends and attend a party. They get to engage in all the fun party game and even go to a haunted house. It is a great Halloween story.
