This Issue's Book Review Theme:
Trick or Treat!
Many Halloween books are just *too spooky* for young children. These books feature kinder, gentler versions of Halloween characters. The spooks are friendly, the scarecrow isn't scary, and the good witch triumphs.
By Kathy Bennett

The Pumpkin Patch
For parents wanting to celebrate harvest time without worrying about the darker aspects of Halloween, we've reviewed two wonderful picture books you can share with your family.
By Kathy Bennett
