Boo! It's Story TimeThis week our toddlers and preschoolers heard ghost stories for our Story Time classes. It's hard to do this type of story with very young children because they can scare easily. We chose the following books to read: Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara, No Ghost Under my Bed by Guido Van Genechten, Boo! A Ghost Story that could be true by Tony Johnston and Old Devil Wind by Bill Martin Jr. Most of these stories have a fun element and keep the scariness to a minimum. The children especially liked moaning like a ghost during Old Devil Wind.
We made "ghosts" from a simple white kleenex and used them to do several activities, including a poem called Little Ghost by Jean Warren.
Next week: Witches
