“Goodnight Bob” is just the right amount of spookiness for your little one on Halloween night. Once your little ghosts and ghouls are tucked into bed, enjoy reading them a goodnight story.
Happy Halloween and happy reading from the Hassetts.

Our fans start reading young. Pictured here is M.J. who is meeting her new literary pal, Ben. Ben will be a steady and lifelong friend to M.J. through the power of reading. Thank you, Ben and thank you M.J.!
As the weather turns cold, summer-loving creatures start hiding themselves away in warm places to take naps. This skunk heard a rumor that Nana Quimby was accepting house guests. Uh-oh, Nana! Watch out for that skunk!
This week Nana Quimby hired a monkey to mow the lawn because it has been too hot for her to be out in the sun doing yard work. And besides, the monkey seems to enjoy the extra spending cash!
