Franklin has always been a favorite show in our house and my kids would watch it on PBS all the time. In this book, Franklin dresses up as Frankenstein for Halloween and prepares for a Halloween party, parade, haunted house and games. It's a cute book for Franklin fans complete with a wonderful story and detailed illustrations.

Franklin and his friends are excited about the Halloween party. But things get scary when Franklin begins to think that there might be a real ghost at the party in this Franklin Classic Storybook. (amazon).

My son came home from school sick today. I thought he might like to cuddle up with mom and read a story. That always seems to help a little.

We read Franklin's Halloween. I had downloaded it from netgalley and wanted to read it with my eight year old. I love to see what they think. I know what I like in a children's story: great pictures, humor, a lesson, phonetics....etc. Kids mostly want a good story and to see the pictures. I asked him what he thought and he said it was good. I asked him if other kids would like this book and he said "yes." Ok, no elaboration here, but what can I expect? He's laying in his bed with a bowl close by. He did say that his favorite part was they mysterious ghost.

My thoughts are that this book is really cute. I love Franklin. The stories are always well illustrated and have a solid plot. Franklin's dilemma was what to be for Halloween. The fun part was when there was a mystery concerning a ghost. At the end everyone is happy and had a great Halloween. Cute and sweet book that has all of the key elements of a good story. Not too scarey for little ones either.

I definitely recommend this book to sit and cuddle with your favorite trick-or-treater. ( )

I think this book was very good. While it had some scary parts, it also had a great morale of sharing. I think that this book would be perfect to read the day before halloween because that would show the children that if anyone is sick on halloween, that they should consider sharing. I think that this book is good because it sets a great mood for halloween. ( )
