It’s HALLOWEEN! So we’re blogging our all time favourite Halloween book: Eek! Halloween! By the marvellous Sandra Boynton via @raincoastbooks. This timeless classic is a hilarious rhyming romp through Halloween on the farm. The chickens are nervous, strange things are happening, are you brave enough to follow these silly chickens to the end? Recommended for all Halloweener’s small & tall, near and far, spooky and silly, the end.
Annnnd we’re back! This week with the fabulous DK Canada Publishing for a week of Pop-up Peekaboo books to delight your smalls!
First up is Pop-Up Peekaboo Pumpkin because I don’t know about you guys, but at the first hint of a chill breeze, there were pumpkins on my doorstep. All hail Autumn.
We love Pop-Up Peekaboo Pumpkin! A sturdy, lap-size board book filled with Halloween imagery–but in friendly, stuffy toy form for smalls to enjoy without a scare. Huge peekaboo flaps are great for little hands and gorgeous, high contrast Halloween colours are perfect for developing eyes. A Halloween classic to enjoy for many years to come. Recommended ages 1.5 & up!
Pop-Up Peekaboo Pumpkin follows a series of friendly Halloween characters as they look behind, around and inside some spooky places! Large, simple flaps are perfect for small hands and each of the characters is a photographed toy for extra friendliness - a sensitive detail for such a young audience. Recommended 2+up
Baby Touch & Feel Halloween is a charming, high contrast touch & feel board book filled with bright colours, friendly characters and classic Halloween vocabulary (abracadabra says the wizard!) Bonus blog call-out: the green, sticky mixture in the cauldron features a truly sticky touch & feel that my 2.5 year old small was delighted with! A unique touch & feel experience! Recommended 6 months & up!
Stay tuned for Friday’s post that features an exciting giveaway!
