This is a terrific book for Halloween that stars five perpetually smiling jack-o-lanterns. The book is about Halloween and includes pumpkins, ghosts, and witches but it is not scary at all. It is a larger sized board book that incorporates some excellent large-scale illustrations. All of the illustrations convey humor and fun rather than fright.

There is a lot of rhyming and repetition that will make your child more engaged in the story. The book is also very short, which makes it a perfect selection for this age group. The text is not too overwhelming, allowing the focus to remain on the terrific illustrations.

I read this with my nephews last Halloween, and I was not sure if it was going to be a successful experience. Both of them were very excited about their new Halloween costumes, and I was not sure if switching into reading mode would be accepted. The rhymes, funny pictures, and interesting subject matter really made them want to sit down and read the story. They started to talk along with the rhymes excitedly, and the reading session was a definite success.
