A is for apple, B is for bat, and C is for cat in this beautifully illustrated ABC book that celebrates the traditions of the year’s spookiest holiday. Each letter of the alphabet represents another aspect of Halloween lore, so readers learn that jack-o’-lanterns have their origins in an old Irish myth and the harvest festival Nutcrack Night was a precursor to Halloween.
Beverly Barras Vidrine and Alison Davis Lyne previously teamed up to produce Easter Day alphabet, which Chicago Parent Magazine described as being “filled with colorful and appealing pictures.”
