These WERID BUT TRUE! books are always a popular choice among kids because they can get all kinds of fun facts in a short period of time. The books are small and include large, easy-to-read print and fun photos and graphics to keep kids entertained.
This time there is an entire book full of facts all about Halloween. I had no idea there was so much to learn about Halloween or other spooky facts.
The Queen’s bedroom at the White House included Andrew Jackson’s bed and is said to be one of the most haunted spots in the White House.
Get your candy corn ready to celebrate National Candy Corn day on October 30.
The book doesn’t just talk about Halloween celebrations in the US, but also across the world. Parades in Japan, pumpkins in Sardinia, folklore in the Balkans, and superstitions in Scotland are just part of the Halloween fun in other countries. If you are planning to celebrate in your community, make sure your child’s costume isn’t banned like some have banned clown costumes. If you are in Hollywood, CA, don’t use silly string anywhere or you could find yourself in trouble! If you are looking for costume inspiration, check out what the astronauts on the ISS dressed as for Halloween one year: Elvis, Darth Vader, and a Mad Scientist.
Unfortunately, some communities will not be having any Halloween celebrations this year due to the pandemic, so this book offers a way to still find the fun of Halloween and enjoy all the spookiness around the holiday.
