Windows on Halloween: Slide and Find: Spooky
LOOK AT THE SHADOWS IN THE WINDOWS.
WHO LIVES IN THIS SPOOKY HOUSE?
In this "toy and movable book, the youngest readers find a suitably frightful haunted house with windows, each of which shows one of the usual spooky suspects during the Halloween season.
And there's a bit of tactile fun here. Each of these windows slides open, like a movable sash, revealing the scary resident or item inside, along with the printed word--a cat, a potion, a witch's broom and brew, and her pet, or familiar, a frog, all on the first page.
Gary the Ghost gets his own wall next, with his party guests in view, each through their own windows--Molly Mummy, Sophie Skeleton, and Barry Bat, to be exact.
If creepy counting is the choice, there are holiday icons galore in store right at the readers' fingertips--pumpkins, owls, bats, and spiders in different numbers,
Emergent readers will get a light workout in Roger Priddy's Slide and Find Spooky (Slide and Find Book) (St. Martin's Press/Priddy Books, 2014), along with the fun of opening and closing the four windows on each side of the spooky old mansion in this open-and-shut case of Halloween symbols. As an introduction for baby spooks or some practice for older ghosts and goblins learning to read, this one is right for the scary season.
