Before Halloween night begins, a creative group of trick-or-treaters get their costumes ready and play a guessing game with the reader about what they are dressing up as. Then they gather together, run to the first house, ring the bell and then yell, “trick-or-treat!” 

Here's a Halloween treat that goes with It's Halloween Night! Jennifer Morris has created paper dolls that you can color and cut out. Download the full, three page paper-doll PDF here.


“Looking for a Halloween read-aloud that will keep young children engaged and thinking? If your answer is "yes," then It's Halloween Night!will be a sure win.

In addition to a fun first-read, the rhyming and predictable text pattern makes the book a good choice for beginning readers. Teachers may also want to chart the text for choral reading and word family work. It's Halloween Night is a versatile picture book and a positive addition to any primary grade classroom.

Maria Lamattina, EdD., Children’s Literature

“Simple rhyming sentences and colorful, uncluttered illustrations give clues to the costume, but the answer isn't revealed until the page is turned. Children can find stars, spiders, bats, and pumpkins hidden in the backgrounds of each colorful spread. This not-so-scary Halloween book is filled with smiles and treats.”
