Halloween Cuties

The great thing about a holiday is that it inspires us to be spontaneous & silly!

After all, it's such a small window where you can draw jack-o-lantern faces on your tiny clementines at breakfast while truly appreciating the spoooookiness of listening to Geronimo Stilton: Cat and Mouse in a Haunted House.

Linus told me to draw a "furious" jack-o-lantern,
which really sounds very cute & not-at-all furious -- furry-us : )

Set the Halloween mood with these books:
The Witch Family by Eleanor Estes
Magic Tree House: Haunted Castle on Hallow's Eve by Mary Pope Osborne
The Boxcar Children Halloween Special by Gertrude Chandler Warner
A to Z Mysteries: Sleepy Hollow Sleepover by Ron Roy
Nate the Great and the Halloween Hunt by Marjorie Weinmen Sharmat
Cam Jansen and the Mystery at the Haunted House by David Adler

Or these picture books:
Room On a Broom by Julia Donaldson
The Little Old Woman Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams
Pumpkin Heads by Wendell Minor
Five Little Pumpkins by Harper Growing Tree
