For today’s Viola Corner we have a double feature. First up:
by Betty Palatin
Jane Has a Halloween Dream is a fun journey into counting for your beginning listeners and learners. This book is filled with all things Halloween, with ghouls and monsters galore. Your child will get a giggle with Jane’s Halloween dream while learning to count to ten.
The story takes your child into a haunted house where our fun monsters are having a party. As the guests arrive they will count up to nine, as the monsters leave your child will experience counting backwards.
This is a not your typical counting book for children. It is creative and a perfect Halloween story. The pictures are well drawn and perfect for the 2 – 4 year old range it is geared towards.
Viola’s Review: I like the monsters! (Viola is fascinated with monsters and has been known to wake up in the middle of the night and “hunt” for them.) I like the Jack – O – Lateran too and I can count like Jane does.
Our Second Children’s book feature is:
by Sandie Lee
Wisty Witch’s Stew for Two is a fun counting book for your 3 to 5 year-old listeners and learners. Each page has a big, bold picture that is simple, yet lively. In addition, the illustration complements the text for each corresponding number from one to ten.
Take your child on a fun journey through Wisty Witch’s recipe for her Pumpkin Stew. Each page represents a number and presents a fun ghoulish ingredient that Wisty adds to her big pot. Your children can count along with the recipe making this a fun interactive book.
Wisty Witch’s Stew for Two is also written in rhyme and will delight and amaze your little listeners with her wacky ingredients and a sweet inviting ending.
This is another cute counting book for Halloween. This one illustrates the numbers with the ingredients that go in Wisty’s Stew. The illustrations are great.
I can count the stuff on the pages. I like the Halloween books. They are fun to read.
