From Apples to Zombies, the alphabet has never been spookier! Find visual treats and tricky rhymes in this colorful Halloween primer. All Hallow’s ABC is a delight to read out loud for kids of all ages.

All Hallow’s ABC is a delightful, fun read for young kids. Each page contains a rhyme and gorgeous illustrations of ghosts (not the scary kind, think Casper), little vampires, Victorian houses, skeletons, and much more. The illustrations are age-appropriate, and they fit the story well. As the title suggests, the book goes on to explain the ABC, but in true Halloween fashion. For example: “A is for apples we’ll bob tonight, B is for a ghostly boo! We shiver in fright.” These are two pages, so there’s rhyme every other page.

The rhymes are well done, and some of them would, no doubt, make a child laugh out loud. I’m not a child anymore, and even I enjoyed it! The illustrations weren’t overdone, and they really fit the theme. The book was well-formatted, and everything about it was a good choice, from the font to the illustrations to the colors. The author did an amazing job.

I’d love to read more kids books by this author. She clearly has the talent to keep her text uncomplicated and fun, while actually teaching kids something.
