Readers will delight in this lively read-aloud story with a clever and surprising twist at the end—perfect for Halloween and year round!
It’s Halloween season! It’s a big deal to our daughters and our family is looking forward to Brooke’s Fall Fest to showcase our costumes. We love Halloween and look forward to reading new Halloween books of the season. I have a fun one today and it’s all about ‘Monster’ trucks! Ready, set, go! The monster truck race is on in Anika Denise’s frightfully delightful picture book. The book takes place on a spooky speedway, where all the Monster Trucks moan and grumble! There is Frankentruck, Zombie Truck, Ghost Truck, and many more Halloween-esque Monster Trucks that race to the finish line. You anticipate who will win the race as you and your child soak in the Monster Truck’s spooky battle and the race has a frightfully fun twist on an unexpected contender. It’s an awesome book for Halloween and we enjoyed incorporating things we learned while watching the Rio Olympics about competing and finishing in competition and that sometimes it’s someone you least expect to win, but it’s all about opportunity meeting preparation. Even for tricked-out Halloween Monster Trucks! Adorable!
