Some SPOOKY Good Books!

Halloween is quickly approaching, and in light of that fact, I decided that this week's books should be some fun costume ideas! From Presidents to doggies, no matter how you dress up, don't forget to read this week, in between bites of candy of course! :)

Madam President
by: Lane Smith
Summary: A confident girl walks readers through a typical day at home and at school (Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary) as she fantasizes about herself as president. Her first executive order is for waffles. She then negotiates a treaty between a cat and dog and appoints a toy cabinet; Mr. Potato Head is a dapper Secretary of Agriculture. In decisive fonts, the Head of State vetoes tuna casserole and other schoolhouse aberrations. She "leads by example" when it's time to straighten up her bedroom, but wisely delegates an ambassador's visit to the VP as weariness sets in.

Arthur's Halloween Costume
by: Lillian Hoban
Summary: Arthur the chimpanzee, after worrying that his Halloween costume won't be scary enough, wins a prize for the most original costume in the school.

Happy Halloween Biscuit!
by: Alyssa Capucilli
Summary: Wooof! Wooof!
Biscuit and the little girl are going trick-or-treating on his first Halloween. What kinds of silly surprises are in store for them?
Pull back the flaps to find out.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
