Don't Knock There! Beware the Haunted House
WHAT'S IN THAT WINDOW? IT'S DARK IN THERE!
WHAT IS IT, YOU WONDER. PEEK IN IF YOU DARE!
There are a lot of beasties who go bump in the night on Halloween, most of them potentially scary to tots and preschoolers. Werewolves and witches at the door! Frankenstein and vampires ringing the bell! Outside on the sidewalk Cinderella holds hands with a ghost, and all of them leap and skip and make funny noises!
Some holiday board books can help mediate the Halloween scene, books which introduce the cast of characters that roam on All Hallow's Eve, and some like Beware the Haunted House (SmartKidz Media, 2013) have a part to play in this holiday. With a Press Here button available on each page to provide the background sound for each page--with flashing lights, howls, and kids giggling at the fun of a small fright--youngsters can experience a preview of the event in advance. And for tots too tiny to make the trek outside with the older tricksters, this book provides a hands-on treat for little apprentice spooks to ease the transition from shake and shiver to treat giver.
