A halloween book for emergent readers

Happy Halloween, Mittens (My First I Can Read)Nick is getting ready for Halloween and his cat, Mittens wants to help in Happy Halloween, Mittens (My First I Can Read). However, when Nick paints spooky faces, Mittens gets into the paint. And when Nick puts up cobwebs for decoration, the cobweb falls down on Mittens. Let's not even get into what happens when Nick makes cookies!

The fun continues throughout the book and follows with a repetitive line:

"Oh, Mittens," says Nick.
"You are not helping at all!"

But when Nick hangs a ghost outside, he doesn't think it's spooky enough. Fortunately, Mittens knows just what to do!

This Shared Reading book starts with basic language and word repetition ideal for sharing with your emergent reader. Not only will readers enjoy the whimsical illustrations, they'll want to join in the holiday fun!
