Family-Friendly Friday: Ghost Edition

This week’s Family-Friendly Friday theme is Ghosts.
They may make things go bump in the night, but with these ghosts you aren’t in for a fright.

Ghosties: A Silly Rhyming Spooky Picture Book for Kids by Gerald Hawksley

Halloween is in the air.
You’d like to see a ghost – but where?
At night when the sun’s gone down,
Come with me to Ghostie Town.
Where you will find the most colorful and cheerful collection of ghosties you could ever hope to meet.

Available on: Kindle and Paperback

Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett (Author), Christian Robinson (Illustrator)

You would like being friends with Leo. He likes to draw, he makes delicious snacks, and most people can’t even see him. Because Leo is also a ghost. When a new family moves into his home and Leo’s efforts to welcome them are misunderstood, Leo decides it is time to leave and see the world. That is how he meets Jane, a kid with a tremendous imagination and an open position for a worthy knight. That is how Leo and Jane become friends. And that is when their adventures begin.
