Halloween Homage to 80s Horror Book Covers – PoetsINI may not have fully understood the Dewy Decimal System, but I was quite sure how to play with books. Home at P. Drive, doing homework at the dining room table, eating dinner as a family in the kitchen, throwing a piece of bread to Sass out in the garage, or doing a play in the basement with my neighborhood friends. I look at the picture of ox-cart man walking the long road to Portsmouth, and I can hear our front door creak, smell Thanksgiving stuffing, feel the warmth of a down vest in a house where, in January, the thermostat stayed below 65 all day, and dropped down to more like 50, all night. Like all Berenstain Bear books, this one has a short, rhyming forward that foreshadows the topic of the tale. Also like most Berenstain Bear books, this one is as much about Mama teaching Papa right from wrong as it is about Mamma teaching the cubs. Complete with costumed cubs, trick-or-treat maps and a moonlit Halloween eve, this book not only teaches a lesson about acceptance, but is fun and even a little bit spooky.
Halloween Memories Only 80’s Kids Will Understand
To learn more visit my About Me page. Our Halloween celebrations were magical, and simple, which may have been what made them magical. But I can still rehash old memories with them as I comb through costumes in the kiddie section at Walmart, you know, the ones that look like slightly smaller versions of Sexy Kitty and Naughty Nurse. Ugh, gross. But as long as it is ok for Walmart to sell a sexy version of a cat costume for kids, I am going to use it. Here we go.

In grade school, there was no better time of year than Halloween. Your classroom was decorated in cobwebs and spiders, your got to do fun art projects with pumpkins, and you even had a Halloween party at school where you could dress up, eat candy, and if you were really lucky watch a themed movie. But the best part of being in school in October wasn't the holiday treats or even your teacher's kooky costume, it was the children's Halloween books that you'll always remember reading. From preschool to middle school, story time to independent reading, your October was filled with fun Halloween stories featuring ghouls, ghost, and witches galore. There were tales of trick-or-treating on dark and windy nights, books about haunted houses and the brave kids who entered them, and mysterious monsters causing all kinds of Halloween mayhem. Chances are that the first book that actually scared you was one you read in school for Halloween. If you miss the days of scary story time and holiday themed chapter books, then you're not alone.
