We're Off to Find the Witch's House

It’s not quite that time of year yet and my daughter asks me every time we go into Target why are the Halloween decorations up already but she still picked this book off her shelf for reading time.  It gets pulled out each year and it never gets old.

A group of children are getting dressed up in their costumes and head out to find the witch’s house. Along the way they encounter a shirking, lurking Dracula, a ghastly ghost and a host of other frightening creatures.  Will they make it to the witch’s house or will their fears get the best of them?

The book ends with the kids reaching the witch’s house where a party is going on and the kids are playing my daughter’s favorite party game, hit the pinata!

The illustrations in this book are wonderful and we notice something new each time we read it like the first few times through I didn’t realize each child loses some part of their costume when they encounter one of the creatures.  Then in the end the “creatures” turn out to be other children in costume and they show up at the party with all the lost items.

This is the perfect book to get into the Halloween spirit with the little ones without it being too scary for them.
