My son has been counting down the days to October. Why? Because October brings halloween of course! Costume discussions began in August. Trick or Treat strategy a few weeks ago. And I'm sure a blow by blow of who's wearing what will be coming up next.
One thing I've found to help my kids curb the anticipation is enjoying a halloween book a couple of nights a week. Dem Bones, by Bob Barner is a cute lyrical book stringing together different parts of the body while singing things like "Leg bone connects to da, knee bone". This will be a great one to read together with my little skeleton this year.
Here are a few more of my favorites for halloween.
