We are looking forward to celebrating Halloween with lanterns by the door and treacle scones to eat – and we are also celebrating with three new additions to our bookshop shelves and a free Halloween sensory story download!
Room on the Broom Touch and Feel Book is a companion to Julia Donaldson’s Room on the Broom, with Axel Scheffler’s brilliant illustrations. But in this book there is the added delight of interesting tactile elements to explore…
There is more tactile fun in That’s Not My Bat by Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells; a spooky addition to the That’s Not My… series. Very engaging bats with hairy ears, fluffy tummies and shiny eyes!
Our third new book is the wonderful There’s a Ghost in This House by Oliver Jeffers. A gently spooky tale with minimal text this book has intriguing interactive transparent pages which allow you to make the ghosts appear and disappear. This book is particularly suitable for older pre-readers.
Our last Halloween treat is an addition to our free multi-sensory story downloads. This traditional Scottish skeleton tale is really fun to tell and suitable for a wide age range. When it comes to props it is a very adaptable story – you can improvise with the things you have to hand. Dim the lights, light the lantern and have a go!
