“What color is Halloween?” It is green, purple, white, gray, yellow, brown, black, red, and orange. Each page of this delightful book highlights one of these colors pointing out things about Halloween that are each of those colors. The illustrations are large, bright, and strong. They fill the pages with fun characters, creatures, and objects. The text is full of rhymes that poetically describe each picture. I love the idea of reading this aloud and asking the kids to name other things about Halloween and ask them what color it is. You can also ask the younger kids to name things that fall under each color. I know several kids off the top of my head that would enjoy this book. It would be a great addition to any Halloween story time.
