    Thanks for this! I have a newish reader in my house and I’m sure this will be a huge hit – poetry and reading combined with his favourite holiday!

      The book is perfect for “newish readers”! I hope your child enjoys chanting along with it as much as my son has been. 🙂

    Wow! That little book looks so great and your video is really cute too. My kids loved the 5 Little Pumpkins when they were little themselves. They’ve now graduated to zombies and such! You can see what I mean from our latest book review! lol

    Thanks so much for linking in to the Kid Lit Blog Hop. I’m so glad we connected and I’m now following you via email, and all the other ways too! Hope to see you again and I look forward to your posts.
    Cheers! 🙂
