Love for Children's Books

It is interesting to note how I have always been fascinated with children's books. It is also my dream to write some one day.

When I was actively teaching, I've been collecting children's books that I found interesting. I used them for storytelling activities. To this day, they have proven to be really helpful to me even as a freelance private tutor.

The idea for this hub came about as I engaged my students in another storytelling activity. This time it's about a fun ghost book for children. I suppose ghost story books need not always be scary.

The Ghost's Dinner (A Golden Books Paperback)
The Ghost's Dinner (A Golden Books Paperback)

A fun ghost storybook about Henry the ghost who invites his friends to a dinner party.


Why I Like The Ghost's Dinner

I found this book in a book sale. I took one look and liked it immediately. The book is about a ghost named Henry who hosted a dinner party for his friends. He whipped up some colorful delights that made it more fun as the ghosts turned the same color as the food they ate. Younger children will find the book appealing as they see the changes in the ghosts.

Looking up the book on Amazon, I found that it received 5 out of 5 stars from 12 customer reviews. I'd say I'm not the only one who totally enjoyed reading the book.

It's perfect for all occasions, not only for Halloween.
