Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly theme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
This week's theme is all about Halloween. At first, I was thinking I'd skip this week's. But then I realized it really was going to be pretty easy. The topic itself gave two different options - 1. the top ten books/movies to read/watch to get in a Halloween mood or 2. the top ten book character you would want to BE for Halloween. I went with the first option and split it with books and movies. And of course, there is chocolate available to all who want some.
1. The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin by Sorali Fry - This is such a cute book! I saw it in my mom's Scholastic catalog and promptly ordered it for my best friend. It's really really adorable about a small pumpkin's adventure. It's to the tune of Itsy Bitsy Spider.
2. Five Little Pumpkins by Dan Yaccanio - Another fun one. It's also a familiar rhyme to it. I've read it several times over the years.
3. Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson - A witch is going for a ride and ends up taking along some additional passengers. It's also very cute.
4. The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey - This is one about a little dachshund that is going trick or treating. But all of the costumes for him are things like a hot dog in a bun and things like that. But it's so cute.
5. The Witches by Roald Dahl - I remember reading this one as a child and liking it, but not as much as either James & the Giant Peach or Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. It's a good read for 3rd grade on up.
6. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - I think I've seen just about every Charlie Brown video. There is just something so special about Charlie Brown and the gang.
