Twas the Night Before Halloween by Natasha Wing and Illustrated by Cynthia Fisher
This book is wonderfully written using the story Twas The Night Before Christmas. It is written with all the rhyme as the original, so it's a lot of fun to read out loud. Your students will enjoy hearing how the witch and her monster friends are getting ready for the the children to come trick or treating. Your students will connect to the part when the children are all getting ready for trick-or-treating and they will laugh when the children all run away from the witch and all her friends. But then you will see your students get a bit sad when they realize that the witch and her friends were throwing the children a Halloween party and weren't going to scare them. But never fear, the witch and her friends decide to not let the children's running away ruin their party!
If this book is not on your to read list, you won't go wrong to add it.
