Here’s a fun read for your younger Halloween fans. This book is a perennial favorite at my school. I usually read it with kindergarten, pre-k and 1st grade students around Halloween and love to have them join in with me as I read.
There once was a little old lady who wasn’t afraid of anything. As she walks in the woods, she is followed, first by shoes that go CLOMP, CLOMP. Then, she is followed by pants that go WIGGLE WIGGLE, a shirt that goes SHAKE SHAKE. Each time, she turns and says “Get out of my way, I’m not afraid of you!”. When she gets home, who should knock on the door, but the shoes, pants, shirt and a pumpkin head all trying to scare her. When she says she’s not afraid, the pumpkin head looks so sad that she comes up with a great way for him to scare someone. Read the book to find out how!
