What is Halloween? By Harriet Ziefert illustrated by Claire Schumacher

Everyone loves the lift-the-flap story format (until the flaps get torn off). My children and I delved into this one tonight for bedtime stories and enjoyed hearing a simplified version of what Halloween is all about. I know there are some parents who don’t ascribe to the whole history of Halloween. However, I know there are also a lot of parents who find that celebrating our power over scariness is a great idea.

 A simple explanation of Halloween: it’s for carving pumpkins, going trick-or-treating, dressing up as whatever you imagine, finding out that there are lots more good people than bad in the world and having fun as a family. Happy Halloween!
