BOOKS USED IN THIS UNIT

 

Scaredy Cat SPLAT 

My Momma Says There Aren't Any Ghosts, Goblins, Monsters, or Things by Judith Viorst - A special story Mrs. Viorst's own son helped her write.  All parents would relate to this fun story.

There's a Nightmare in My Closet Childhood fear of the dark and the resulting exercise in imaginative exaggeration are given that special Mercer Mayer treatment in this dryly humorous fantasy.  Young children will easily empathize with the boy and can be comforted by his experience.

 It's Halloween by J Prelutsky - This book of poems is a treat! 

 Pumpkin Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington - James plants a pumpkin seed and grows a pumpkin.  A celebration of life and growth, with wonderful illustrations.
