Fingers for Lunch
Brandt Lewis, Cori Doerrfeld
My young kids absolutely love this finger-play board book that is perfect for some silly Halloween fun! Hands-on rhyming books like this one aren’t just amusing for toddlers, though; they promote social, language, and fine-motor skills.
Each page in Fingers for Lunch by Brandt Lewis and Cori Doerrfeld has a funny little poem and a scene featuring a blue monster, his pet dinosaur, and a few of your wiggling fingers. CHOMP! Watch your pinkies.
Little Blue Truck's Halloween
Alice Schertle, Jill McElmurry
We are die-hard fans of the original Little Blue Truck, and we love collecting the whole series because of their rhyming, rhythmic, read-aloud appeal and positive messages. So, we jumped at the chance to grab the brand new Halloween title. Did you know it is already an Amazon best seller?
This board book is large, colorful, and full of your favorite farm characters—in costume! I think it is a great introduction to the concept of dressing up for the holiday, and it is not at all gruesome or scary. My kids think its lift-the-flap action is hilarious.
This sturdy and bright book introduces Halloween to the littlest readers, but it still cracks adults up, too. We get to follow a flock of nervous chickens through the evening and glimpse some of our favorite Boynton characters. The circle cut out on the front cover is a nice, interactive touch for busy little hands.
