I liked this book for a few reasons. For one, I liked the language of the story. The story was written in a pattern. The story begins with, “Here is the hand that knocked on the door.” As the story continues, each event that happens is added to that beginning event. This allows, students to follow along and remember all the past events that took place in the story. Also, I liked the illustrations. Each page has a detailed picture that goes along with each event. Also, every other page has a little detail from the previous page that goes along with the text. For example, next to the word “hand” in the beginning sentence, there is a little picture of a hand. This is helpful for students who may be struggling with reading because these pictures give them clues to what the word says. There is no major message of Inside a House That is Haunted. Instead, it is a silly story related to Halloween that could be used for a rebus read-along. ( )

One of my favorite illustrators which makes this book come to life. The story is written in a rhythm like "The Napping House" or "There was an Old Lady That Swallowed a Fly" story. Each part starts out with a few sentences, than each subsequent page builds on the previous phrase. This books is great for teaching vocabulary related to Halloween. Now Halloween may not be the most politically correct holiday, it is one that many school children can relate to. Children are familiar with the theme, so pre-teaching isn't as necessary. For thsoe that are not familiar with Halloween, then obviously pre-teaching would be needed. This book is good for teaching words such as: haunted, frightened, shriek, or other words that are not often used in day to day language. Students would need to be taught these vocabulary words specifically for better understanding, at least in ELL or SPED environments. With a cute story and great graphics this is one of my favorite stories. ( )

A rhyming story, it builds on each line, in the manner of the "house that jack built" and shows just how scarey it can be when the monsters who live in the house are startled by a knock on the door. When they open the door to a child in a monster mask they are ok, until he removes the mask and reveals the child. Then they run screaming from the house!
