The Ghosts Go Scaring: Book Review



Halloween is right around the corner and the Ghosts are out to go scaring! This delightful book by Chrissy Bozik can be sung or spoken to your child (we love the idea of singing it). The tune of The Ants Go Marching is recommended, which is perfect for young children who are learning new words through repetition and music. Children will also relate to the story because they know The Ants Go Marching so well.

Your child will see the ghosts multiply page by page going up to the number ten. Each ghost is dressed up for Halloween as they go trick or treating and causing silliness every step they float.

Illustrator Patricia Storms has vibrant pictures of these not so scary ghosts who are ready for a perfect spooktacular Halloween night!
