Bedtime for Boo by Mickie Matheis

Here's a great Halloween book for a young one that doesn't want to be scared.  It's about ghosts, but they're a family just like us...

Random House Kids shared this Golden Book picture book with me for review (thank you).  The book has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy to go in your Halloween basket for your little one.

Boo is all excited because this is the first Halloween he gets to go out with the family and yell:  "Boo!"  He has a great time and even scares an owl, but it's all too soon to go home.  After all the excitement, he's having trouble going to sleep.  His Mom comes up to calm him down and get him to sleep.

This author takes all the strange noises of an old house and works it into this tale as comforting sounds to the ghost family.  That's a cute touch and may remove some fears that you don't even know your child has.

Here's a nice Halloween story for bedtime and I bet it won't be long before your child can say some of the rhymes.

Happy reading.

Love the cover and how the author pulls in all the sounds of the house and explains them. Whose house doesn't make strange noises? This book is going to go far!!
