Kindergarten-Grade 2. A story that begins with a class Halloween parade and ends with a party complete with pumpkin cupcakes and one of the teachers in a fairy-godmother costume. In between are double-page spreads that show individual children in their costumes on the left and an illustration of the costume in progress or its inspiration on the right. For example, Jessica is Comet Queen just like the television show, while Evan wears an astronaut suit that he made in the kitchen with his father. While the pictures are flat and at times lacking in energy, this title is still a worthy celebration of a favorite holiday that is just right for young listeners. The male preschool teacher is great as is the multicultural class that's reflective of today's society.?Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
