Trick or . . . Book! Smack Dab in the Classroom by Dia Calhoun

What if you went trick or treating for books? Instead of a treat, a book gets dropped into your bag. This could be an interesting classroom exercise.

List what books you'd hope to get. Sometimes, the person holding the bowl of candy lets you choose your own. Your hand hovers . . . Mars Bar or Hershey Bar?

Similarly, what if your have to choose between two books? For me, these might be Iron-Hearted Violet vs Which Witch. Pair up several book choices. Why would you choose one over the other?

And of course, you'd also have to dress as a character from a book. What if you could only choose books your character might choose? Fun to think about.

Happy Halloween reading and imagining!
