In Karen Katz's Where is Baby's Pumpkin?, a small girl goes hunting for her pumpkin. If that's gone, then how can she go trick or treating?!
As the infant investigates hiding places all over the house, she finds anything but.
There's a friendly ghost. There's a witch's hat. There's the sweetest bats you ever saw; and yay! There's some candy!
Your own little one will be hunting too, as sturdy flaps are lifted to find the pumpkin. Naturally, it all ends well.
Marcy Kelmen's Baby Einstein: Touch and Feel Halloween is even more tactile, as the name suggests. The book is filled with colorful elements, which each yield a different texture, as baby fingers them.
Meanwhile My First Halloween Board Book has it all. There are 36 pages in this DK Publishing special. The beautifully illustrated stories introduce infants to all of the usual personae of the holiday.
In fun ways, it explains all about costumes, candy, and those about to be encountered on the streets, like witches and ghosts. All in ways that can be understood by little ones as young as 12 months old.
Awww! Thank you very much on both counts. You'll have to give me the head's up when it's posted. :)
I love your articles. They are always filled with great ideas and information. I will be setting this one on my side bar for my Fall Season in New England wiz.
If you get pictures of your niece and nephew in Halloween binkies, then I need to see them! :D
I've called them that since The Rug Rats Movie. I just thought it was amusing that there was a different word used in almost every comment you got XD
ALSO. THE WORD IS IN. My niece and nephew still use binkies occasionally. I guess my niece more-so than my nephew.
Yessssssssssssssssssss. I told my sister-in-law pictures are due! And she was all what for? And I told her she'd know.
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
Ember - PS I've heard of them called a binky too! Though they're most commonly called dummies here, or diddies.
The binkies are extremely safe. The manufacturer makes them in general to European and American standards. They've only recently branched out into dummies for Halloween.
Being an auntie is great, isn't it? You get all of the fun part without the sleepless nights part. :)
PS. dummie, pacifier, binky.
Those halloween binky things are ridiculously adorable. >.>
How safe are they?
*siiiiiiiigh* My niece and nephew are too old for binkys or else I'd so be sending them each one for Halloween! XD Why didn't I know about these a year ago? Seriously. I'm telling my sister in law that her children need siblings. For my own enjoyment, of course! :D
Me too! I so giggled when I saw that one!
I love the little vampire pacifier!
