Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

What did you like about the book? Leslie Patricelli’s bilingual board book, in English and Spanish, is a hit for the littlest readers. The naive art style of illustration, done in vibrant acrylic colors, is very appealing. The worries and the joys of Halloween are covered through sentences and words, covering sounds, exclamations and expressions in both languages.

To whom would you recommend this book?  This belongs in any board book collection, with several extra copies on the display at Halloween.

Who should buy this book? Day cares, preschools and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
