The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
Every year during the week of Halloween, our 1st grade teachers play this song at Morning Stretch. The kids love it! The older kids are reluctant to enjoy it at the start, but by the end, everyone is singing along.
The repetitive phrases beg for actions to go along with them, so let your kids come up with some that are fun and comfortable for them.
The illustrations are darker in tone, but the central images are still colorful. The floating clothing has a cartoony quality that keeps it from being too scary for younger readers.
I love the ending. No spoilers here, you'll have to read it and see :)
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything is a great read for Halloween, a sleepover, or even a camping trip.
