Halloween with Arthur

We've been busy reading many stories about pumpkins, trick-or-treating, and autumn, so I thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorites over the next couple of weeks before Halloween.

Recently, we enjoyed reading Arthur's Halloween by Marc Brown. Arthur is stuck taking his little sister D.W. trick or treating with his friends. Read to find out what happens when they approach a very spooky looking house. This character is also one thier favorite characters featured on the awesome television station- PBS Kids!

For more Halloween fun with Arthur, visit Arthur's website: Halloween: Arthur. Play games with your kids or print out Halloween coloring pages and Masks.

After reading,check out your local video store and rent your favorite Arthur episode. Maybe you'll get lucky and be able to find the Halloween episode.


For older children, Marc Brown writes a series of Chapter Books. For this time of year, I would recommend Arthur and the Scare-Your-Pants-Off Club. For independent readers, it is listed at a 3.4 reading level. This book can also be used for a great bedtime read-a-loud.





And I say - Hey! (Hey!)
What a wonderful kind of day
If we could learn to work and play
And get along with each other.


I couldn't resist ending with part of the Arthur theme song. A good lesson for all of us. Enjoy your day!

Thanks for the resources, Jen! Bob isn't a huge Arthr fan although he will read the books with me. I know, though, that he will like the link to games you posted!
