Beware: The spooky season is upon us!
Children often love to scare themselves silly and this is the time of the year for such fun. The hours of sunshine are shorter, and the dark nights begin much earlier. Bedtime book requests are made up of spooky tales and there is something for all ages and scare levels. There are picture books for toddlers all the way up to chapter books for school-age children.
Here are just a few of the spooky books found haunting the shelves at your Newport Beach Public Library.
"The Graves Family" by Patricia Polacco: When the spooky Graves family moves to town and tries to fit in with the "normal" residents of Union City, everyone is in for a few surprises. This picture book provides an interesting approach to the issue of moving to a new place by a very well-loved and prolific children's author.
