Books related to our project--"This book is a great read to prepare your child for the fun and excitement of Halloween. It displays different American holidays and rates Halloween as Emily Elizabeth's and Clifford's favorites. They show Clifford in different costumes and let's your child interact by asking which would "you" suggest. My 3 years old really enjoys this one."

"Bone soup is a perfect fall book to curl up with and read to your grandchildren on a chilly day with a pot of soup on the stove! And don't forget to throw in a couple of chicken bones for fun!"
