What is Halloween?

In this engaging look at Halloween, Michelle Medlock Adams helps little ones understand the heart of the holiday. Sincere and humorous questions ponder all of the things that Halloween might be about—haunted houses, trick-or-treating, scary masks, and spooky ghosts—only to conclude that it is about celebrating the fall season with family and friends. With whimsical art and rhyming text, this book will help put youngsters at ease with the sometimes-frightening symbols of the holiday.

I tried to find a book that explained what Halloween was all about for my young children (all under the age of 3) but wanted something not too scary and found this book. It is so adorable and explains in such a sweet way that Halloween isn't just about scary costumes but about enjoying this time of the year. It is really a great book, thick cardboard and cute graphics. My kids love to read it year-round!
