Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Ghosts and Goblins

Whether you're celebrating Halloween today, later (like my town in NJ), or never,  here are two books I've shared with some of the ghouls I know this season.

I adore this little vampire.
I believe even very young children can enjoy VAMPIRINA BALLERINA and not even know she's a vampire, or get some of the subtle, funny, smart references.
They will love the story and the fabulous illustrations.

Kathryn Erskine said it perfectly in her blog interview with the author. CLICK HERE to go there.

Advice that's good for life, not just Halloween, for all ages. For story times, for sharing:

 Michael Rex has a new board book version of GOODNIGHT GOON.
Fun for grownups and the SuperHeroes in our lives.
(Michael's mom shared this book with me--Thanks, Kathy! He grew up in our little NJ borough.)

Here's the video:

 And here's my reading Superhero. Scary, no?

Love the Good Night Moon parody but the last few pages didn't load. :(

How strange. I got all 34 pages when I just watched it again.
(I thought it was odd that they even let us read the entire book on youtube!)
