WHAT IS HALLOWEEN?
Michelle Medlock Adams
Synopsis
In this engaging look at Halloween, Michelle Medlock Adams helps little ones understand the heart of the holiday. Sincere and humorous questions ponder all of the things that Halloween might be about—haunted houses, trick-or-treating, scary masks, and spooky ghosts—only to conclude that it is about celebrating the fall season with family and friends. With whimsical art and rhyming text, this book will help put youngsters at ease with the sometimes-frightening symbols of the holiday.

"What is Halloween?" is part of the award-winning "What is...?" series.

Love this book. Gave it to my granddaughter who is a Halloween Birthday girl.

In “What is Halloween” Michelle effectively conveys the fun, not so scary side of this holiday! For me, it conjures up warm and fuzzy memories of neighborhood trick or treating and Halloween parties where we had fun just being together, celebrating fall.
