Trick or Treat Marley review

Trick or Treat, Marley!

It’s Halloween, the silliest and spookiest night of the year. And when Marley’s around, it’s also the messiest! This year the family is throwing a big Halloween party, and Marley wants to help with the preparations. But in typical Marley fashion, instead of helping he causes havoc. He gets his head stuck in a pumpkin, turns the streamers into confetti, eats all of the Halloween candy, and that’s just the beginning!  (goodreads summary)

Oh, that silly Marley is at it is a cute and funny book children will giggle to when they read about his latest antics. With a heart warming bundle of energy, he seems to be getting into everything just before his family's Halloween party is about to begin.  Of course, there is the actual party itself that Marley lets loose at too. If you are already a fan of Marley, then you probably are aware of the many things this little pup could get himself into. The illustrations are also vibrant with eye pleasing colors of the fall season.  Whether you have a party planned in school or at home for young children, this would make a fun read-aloud for the young ones. The story just put me in the mood for a caramel apple! I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday, Christy. I'm your latest follower. Love that you post children's books here. I have two (9 1/2 months and 23 months) and I'm trying to grow them into book lovers. My daughter's a natural, like her mamma. My little guy, well, we're working on him. ;)
