Shake Dem Halloween Bones by W. Nikola-Lisa and illustrated by Mike Reed is one of the best books for a Halloween story time. I love books that have great rhymes and really gets the kids involved. I would either read this as the first book during a story time to get the children excited or towards the middle when they start to get antsy. Either way it is a must read for Halloween. I love the illustrations too because they really capture the essence of the book --- a perfect match of story and pictures!
