A good book for teaching young children math. This Halloween book is a good book for Pre K-3rd grade in which the protagonist is a girl who is given one more thing as each day passes. The one who gifts the protagonist is a mummy. So it is a nice spooky book for Halloween. The pictures are very nice and vivid so that the children will be animated and interested. The thirteen nights of Halloween is a fun mathematics children's spooky book. ( )

Love this book! It was similar to the song "My True Love Gave to Me", but for Halloween. Kids would get a kick out of this book. ( )

The details in this book were incredible to me. There was a lot of though put into it which made the book stand out to me. My favortite part about what the author did was structure the book after the 12 days of christmas. I caught myself literally singing the words in my head the same way I would to christmas version. The silliness to me is what the kids will love the most in a classroom setting. ( )

This Halloween themed book is a spoof off the 12 days of Christmas. I got the opportunity to read this book aloud to a class of 4th graders. It could not have gone better. They understood that it was a spoof off another story and sang along with me while I read to them. This book uses colorful and friendly pictures to illustrate the words. It also has puns such as "baseball bats" illustrated as a group of bats that play baseball. I would highly recommend this book for a Halloween lesson and a lesson on what 'spoofs' are. ( )

Most of us are familiar with the twelve days leading up to Christmas, but how many of us know about the thirteen nights leading up to Halloween? Author Guy Vasilovich has created a lyrical treat to help us count them. On each night, a little girl’s mummy gives her a present. The first present is a bright shiny skeleton key. On each following night, the little girl receives a gift a little more creepy, icky, slimy, or spooky than the previous ones. The usual Halloween characters like bats, ghosts, and witches all make their appearances making this a fun way to enjoy Halloween.

The Bottom Line: "The 13 Nights of Halloween" is filled with creepy cute illustrations in vivid colors that children will love. Sung to the tune of "Twelve Days of Christmas," there is a lot of repetition in this book. The text is easy to read and will be a hit with beginning readers. Enthusiastically recommended for kids in grades K – 2, and for those who love spooktacular illustrations. This book features silly Halloween fun, and I really enjoyed it.
