New Spooky Releases {HarperCollins}

Halloween is by far our family’s favorite holiday. With our six year old reading at a pretty advanced level, we can increase the amount of Halloween books that she’s reading in order to start the Halloween mood! Check out these new Spooky releases from HarperCollins that will be sure to scare up some fun for your little ones!

A ghoulish spin on the classic Christmas rhyme, Halloween night is a story that is meant to set the stage. The illustrations in this book are like no other with animals, monsters and witches who are preparing for the trick-or-treaters to come to their party. But, their haunted house was just a little too successful and all the invited guests flee in terror. What would any good monster do? They of course had to dine on limbs, bugs and goo themselves!
Written by Marjorie Dennis Murray, illustrated by Brandon Dorman – Ages 4-8 – $16.99 

Hedgehug's Halloween

This was an adorable little read with creative pictures to keep you curious with every page turn. Hedgehug completely forgot about the Halloween party of the year and needs to scramble to find a costume. Each of his friends try and help him come up with a costume, but he runs into problems. Your little one will love seeing what happens…does Hedgehug find a costume in time or does he miss the party? Better start reading in order to find out!

monsters love colors

This is a book that your younger children will love. All of the different and bright colored monsters howl, grown and roar on the different pages. Mixing them together create new shades and hues. Each new (and colorless) monster wants to be their very own color and the primary colored monsters help make that happen by mixing what they have to create the perfect shades. It’s a fun and very colorful read.

It’s Halloween: the silliest and spookiest night of the year. And when Marley’s around, it’s also the messiest! This year, the family is throwing a Halloween party, and Marley wants to help with the preparations. But in typical Marley fashion, instead of helping he causes Halloween havoc! I’m fairly certain that Marley is created after my two children. I have a clean house and within seconds it’s like a tornado came through. It’s fun for my kids to see someone else making the mess!
