The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin

My box of Halloween decorations includes a few 
Halloween books, and Spookley has become a 
yearly tradition. 
Both my boys know how Spookley’s odd shape 
became an asset one stormy night in the pumpkin patch.
I had no idea Spookley’s fame had gone beyond our box 
until Sunday when I saw a dvd of his adventures playing 
on the television at a party.
So many books celebrate the value of being different
that you’d think we’d all believe it by now. The trick is to remember all the little ways differences can help see the world in new and sometimes wonderful ways. 
If that’s not enough of a treat for you, curl up with Spookley
or Shadow and the Halloween Party (another from our box)
Today's Book:
The Legend of Spookley, the Square Pumpkin
 Written by Joe Troiano and Illustrated by Susan Banks.
Happy Halloween!
