My First Halloween
I've always loved Tomie dePaola's work. With vibrant illustrations and simple text, dePaola brings the reader into the heart of one family's bustling Halloween traditions in My First Halloween.
From carving jack-o'-lanterns, to making decorations, to putting on costumes, to preparing for a big Halloween celebration, My First Halloween is an inviting glimpse into the fun of Halloween festivities.
While many picture books depict Halloween as being this scary event with menacing costumes (which it often is), I appreciate how dePaola creates an inviting and cheery setting through his illustrations.
Happy Halloween weekend to all!
