Book Review: Pumpkin Moon by Tim Preston

Halloween can be a scary time for a child. Pumpkins seem to be a safe topic to introduce your child to the fall season and the holiday. My son, who just turned 2, is fascinated with the moon. Tim Preston's book is the perfect story to relate something safe, like the moon, with something new, like Halloween.

The story takes place on October 31st. It shows children dressed up, making Jack-o'-lanterns and trick-or-treating. The real story takes place after all the children have gone to bed. Then, the jack-o'-lanterns get to have their fun. They go to a party on the moon. Everything is safely in place in the morning.

The illustrations are large and detailed, so you can add your own commentary to the sparse narrative. This would be a good book to share with a group of children.
