We have an extensive collection of children’s Halloween books, and I am hard pressed to find any new books that are worth adding to it. Tracy Gold’s Trick or Treat, Bugs to Eat is an exception to that rule. The story follows a young bat on Halloween, following a lyrical prose reminiscent of childhood. The illustrations add to the story with beautiful colors and cute drawings. Even better, the book introduces bat facts, which as a scientist I absolutely loved seeing.
Our youngest, at seven years old, is above the target age range, but she still thought the book was adorable and liked reading it with me. This is definitely going on the list to send to niblings.
