Last week I shared a fresh new Halloween themed Brain Dance with you, and the festive fun continues this week with the Book Report! This month I'm featuring The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything by Linda Williams and illustrated by Megan Lloyd.
This Halloween tale follows a brave little old lady who sets out one night to gather herbs and food. On her journey, she meets a pair of shoes, pants, a shirt, gloves, a hat, and.... a spooky pumpkin head. They follow her around with clomps, claps, and wiggles, but rather than getting scared by them, the little old lady finds a mutually beneficial task for them.
Kids of all ages will love the light-hearted and interactive nature of this book. It reminds me of We're Going On A Bear Hunt; with the various sounds and actions working from the beginning of the book all the way through the end. This is a perfect book to encourage young kids to not only remember the sounds and actions, but get them moving and exploring similar movements.
What are your favorite Halloween and Fall books? I'd love to know what you and your kids are reading this month! As always, happy reading, and happy dancing!
