Review: Just Say Boo!


"Just Say Boo!" is the last of the three books we were sent for review by HarperCollins, and a huge hit with our little girl (for those keeping track, HarperCollins was 3 for 3 on the Halloween books this year!). 

Beautiful illustrations depict a group of children out trick or treating, and fun rhyming language follows their route.  A repetitive phrase asks children "What do you say?" every couple of pages, to which the answer is, "BOO!" or some cute variation ("Booooooooooooo!" or "Eww!").

The repetition is PERFECT for little readers, both for pure enjoyment and for pre-reading skills.  My daughter loves calling out the words, which she has memorized.  And, the rhyming text is *fun* to read, which makes this mom happy.
If a flickering grin 
gets under your skin,
what do you say?
I think the age range here is fairly wide, since my almost-two and almost-5 year olds both enjoy it. 

Comment!  What are your little ones wearing for Halloween this year?
