This is a collection of Halloween poems that could get any person excited for the Halloween season. It includes a mix of all different kinds of halloween themes poems from witches with their caldron to carving jack-o-lantern. I like that Jack Perlutsky does a lot of different poem collections dealing with a holidays. I picked this one to read because halloween is right around the corner and I wanted to see how I could introduce halloween to my future students through poetry. The main idea of this book is to engage the reader in learning about halloween through poetry. With students you can also breakdown how Prelutsky chose words that rhymed in order to create a rhyme scheme poems. I believe that it is very important that teachers include poem books in their library and Jack Prelutsky's "It's Halloween" is a great book to have. ( )

This book is a collection of poems aimed at children about Halloween. As it doesn't really have a story or plot line, I can't really summarize it in greater detail than that!
Uses: This would be a fun book to use in a unit about poetry if it is around Halloween time. There are many different kinds of poems in it such as lyric poems, short narratives, and even a couple limericks.
Medium: pen and watercolor pencils.

I picked this book up because I remember loving it as a child. Halloween is my favorite time of the year and I remember always loving to read books about it. This book was fun to read over again because it brought back memories. I liked it because there wasn't just one story, there were thirteen. The illustrations are great, and the book rhymes so it's easy and fun to read. I remember when I was little I used to think I was such a good reader because this book is longer than a regular picture book, and has many different short stories. It has stories that cover everything that happens during Halloween. There was no set plot because each story was different, but the over all theme was Halloween. In my opinion this is a great and fun book for 2nd graders because it's a step up from a regular picture book. ( )
