Book Blogger Hop Halloween Edition, October 2nd - October 8th: Madara and White Wrote the Song "1-2-3", and Then Holland-Dozier-Holland Sued Them

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: You're volunteering to read a book to a group of young children at a library. What scary themed book for kids would you read to them?

It would depend on the ages of the children involved.

For younger children, who were still in the "picture book" stage, I'd probably pick My Mama Says There Aren't Any Zombies, Ghosts, Vampires, Creatures, Demons, Monsters, Fiends, Goblins, or Things by Judith Viorst.

For slightly older children, I'd pick something by John Bellairs, probably something like The Figure in the Shadows, or The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

    1. @Angela Pound: Poe can be a little opaque for younger readers. You should try some of the Bellairs books we have. They are on the middle shelves of the white bookcase in the living room.

  2. I will have to look for Judith Viorst's book. It sounds like it would be fun. I just went with my daughter's and my favorite Halloween book--she's not really into scary books yet and tends to scare easy.

    1. @Literary Feline: The Viorst book is a little scary while being, in the end, not scary at all. It is a really great book.
