This Inktober was inspired by our fun afternoon at a local pumpkin patch with family + the "Five Little Pumpkins" Halloween rhyme we have been singing/saying multiple times each day. I get a kick out of reading seasonal and holiday themed books with Nova and if you have Netflix, would HIGHLY recommend the short film "Room on the Broom" based off the book by Julia Donaldson (Author), Axel Scheffler (Illustrator). I've watched it with her at least half a dozen times and still enjoy it. The animation style and story are so charming!
Above are some of our favorite Halloween books:
1. "Boo!" by Jonathan Litton (Author), Fhiona Galloway (Illustrator) - Nova enjoys the repetitive rhyming and calling out "BOO!" When we play hide-and-seek she requests, "Say BOO to me!"
2. "Wickle Woo Has a Halloween Party" by Nosy Crow (Author), Jannie Ho (Illustrator) - is fascinated with pulling the tabs out and pushing them back in. This book has also inspired her to want to be a pirate for Halloween.
3. "A Very Scary Witch Story" by Joanne Barkan (Author), Jody Wheeler (Illustrator) - this is one of my childhood book and IT GLOWS IN THE DARK! While it's not the greatest piece of literature I've ever read, it's SO FUN!
