I bought this little board book for our new grandson's(8 mos.)first Halloween. Even though he can't read, the bright pictures and little children brought big smiles and jabbering. His older sister reads it to him.I have since bought the First Christmas book and Christmas Carols.
I bought this for my 7 month-old-grandson; but my 2 year-old-granddaughter loved it just as much or more. Beautiful illustrations (very colorful) and very study in construction. This book will last a very long time. Definitely recommend!
Tomie dePoula board books are always perfect for little ones not quite ready for listening all the way through a story. Pointing to pictures and naming them are a great way to add to a child's listening vocabulary and then to their speaking vocabulary.
This book is a nice simple overview of Halloween. My 20 month old really liked this book and all of its pictures. It was a great way to explain to her what Halloween and trick or treating is. Much too simple for an older child, but nice for a young one.
This is a great book for babies/toddlers. The drawings are so warm and inviting, and the words flow page to page. It feels like you are hanging out with this family. I also appreciate the diversity of the people in the story.
ISBN 0399217851 - Printed in Singapore. No age range stated. Board book, 12 pages. Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons in 1991. By and illustrated by Tomie dePaola.The reader is taken through the Halloween day - and night! - of a family with young children, including making jack-o-lanterns, decorating for a party and trick-or-treating.This is an adorable book for very young readers who are not yet ready for the scary fun of Halloween. Some illustrations include spooky images, like witches and ghosts, but not in a frightening way. The text is simple and limited, so it's a fast, fast read. The illustrations are most of the pages and they're full of interesting details that kids will enjoy identifying. The only negative, for me, is that this book is so very common. There are dozens of books exactly like this, so it's hard to be impressed. The board pages are sturdy and can take a lot of abuse, plus they're easier to manipulate for small fingers and the glossiness of them makes them easy to wipe clean.- AnnaLovesBooks
Love this whole series of holiday books by Tomie dePaola. We also have My first Easter, My First Thanksgiving and My First Christmas. Great for prepping the littlest ones on what to expect.
Bought this for our son who is autistic. The simple story and pictures keep him engaged. The thick pages hold up to his rough way with books.
