The Night Before Halloween by Natasha Wing is a wonderful halloween children’s picture book. This book would be grade appropriate for children in kindergarten to third grade. The book centers around a group of monsters, and a group of children that are preparing for Halloween. The book depicts both the monsters and children's activities prior to Halloween day. On Halloween day the children go trick or treating, and after going to a few houses they reach the monster’s house. They are greeted by a witch who opens the door, and the children quickly realize that her guise is no costume. Upon this realization all of the children run away, and the monsters who are actually quite nice throw a party and celebrate Halloween. In terms of a central message I think one possible message you can take away would be to never judge a book by its cover. The children were terrified of the witch, but in reality the witch and the little monsters just wanted to have a party with the children. Overall I would rate this book 3 ½ stars, I really enjoyed the warm and festive pictures, and I thought the story was very cute. ( )

28 Months - To the rhyme of The Night Before Christmas but it's not your average knock off. The word choice is very good and appropriate to the holiday. O loves a good Halloween story and this is a really fun and quick read. ( )

This books is a fun children's book for Halloween. It is a spin off to The Night Before Christmas. Little monsters and goblins decorating and doing things the night before Halloween. Kids will have fun reading this colorful picture book as they get into the Halloween spirit. ( )
