Counting it out: Halloween style

Check out my newest listmania list for spooky-fun Halloween reads. Here is a mini review of a fun counting book brought to you by Candlewick Press.
Two Little Witches: A Halloween Counting Story
Written by Harriet Ziefert
Illustrated by Simms Taback
Published by Candlewick Press 1996

Two Little witches is a thrilling, fun read for the preschool set. It begins with one little witch who is joined by another to make two little witches. Along their trick or treat route they meet up and travel with an assortment of spooky-fun characters until a spiky, spotted, four eyed monster answers the door and all but the witches run away. Kidlets can join in with the reading as you count from 1 to 10. Predictable in just the right way this book will put a smile on most any kidlet's face. The bright colors and fun costumes of the trick or treaters will delight and the stickers that come with the book are perfect to use as a tool for your own wee one's version of the story. Available in paperback, it won't break the bank either!
