Have you seen this yet?
Yes, it's that time of year again. I love it. My kids are too old now to trick or treat, but they still get dressed up and go to parties. In fact, my daughter and I talked about her costume ideas this morning over breakfast. And I still decorate the front of the house, although it's a little tamer now than it used to be.
The best part of Hallowe'en for me, though, is the stories. Kids love scary stories. We all do, whether we read them in books or watch them on screens. There's something that seems almost necessary about scaring ourselves and then recovering.
We asked some experts to join me around the TVParents Book Club table and talk to us about why kids love scary stories and to give us their recommendations.
Watch the video, read the recommendations, or listen to the podcast. You might see or hear something that you can read to the kids before they head out with their pillowcases or plastic pumpkins, or better yet, when they come home, tired and ready to sit, eat candy and get scared all over again.
Here's the podcast.
