Synopsis: (from the publisher) It's Halloween night and the street is filled with every sort of character imaginable. But where are they going? Come join the bats, witches, ghosts, and goblins as they march down the street to a great big Halloween party. Full of fun and surprises, the bouncy rhythm and exuberant pictures will make readers want to pick up a hat and try something new.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make your own Halloween hat and re-enact the parade.
•  What do you want to be for Halloween? Draw!
•  Draw a picture of what Halloween Night is like in your neighborhood.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
