reS-Gr 2-Preparing a costume for Emily is an event for her entire family. Grandma brings her a purple cape and Grandpa brings a skirt to match. In a pattern akin to "This Is the House That Jack Built," striped socks, a red purse, and, of course, a big black hat are added. Then, "This is a snake that's long and slim-/To go with the hat with a big, black rim-/To go with the purse with the strings untied-/To go with the socks with stripes on the side-." Mom decorates and Dad looks on. Each alternating page is black with a colorful trim and the words for each accessory pop out from the otherwise white print in bold colors along with skeletons, bats, or ghosts. A boldly colored, full-page illustration of the child and the cumulative action appears on the opposite page. This is a great read-aloud for the younger set and a good choice for newly independent readers. It has all of the fun and none of the fright of Halloween.
