Skeleton Hiccups

Halloween is fast approaching, can you believe it? The Storybook Shoppe has all kinds of festive Halloween books prominently displayed on the front table and last week when I was in, I picked up a few good ones. Seasonal books are so much fun to read each year.  Each holiday we buy just a few new ones for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter. When the holiday is over, we put them away and bring them out next year. It keeps them very "fresh" and "new." (And that way you aren't reading Halloween books all year long!) 

Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler, illustrated by S.D. Schindler is the perfect Halloween story for little ones. My daughter, Molly, is just learning to read and it's short text is easy for her. I love watching her sound out each letter to make the word. She's getting very good! Short lines like these are just at her reading level.

With illustrations of pumpkins, "RIP" signs, ghosts, spiders and skeletons, this book has all the iconic Halloween goodies in it that children have come to expect.  The illustrations are vibrant, comically spooky but not scary. As for the writing, it's a funny story about how to cure a skeleton who has the hiccups. Children will love how this skeleton ultimately rids himself of hiccups and you will, too. (Boo! It involves a mirror!)
