This one book has it all: gorgeous visuals appealing to children, simple text that keeps older children amused and two-year-olds interested, a ghost theme that is not scary, and thanks goodness no morals at all. The two-to-three-year olds in my room went ballistic with the cute little ghosts suddenly appearing on the semi-transparent pages on top of the illustrations. Just magic...
Absolutely advised for non-scary Halloween reads.

I recently finished a lovely illustrated book by Oliver Jeffers. Here We Are Notes For Living on Planet Earth, written in 2017 is a beautiful message to his two-month old son welcoming him to this planet we call earth. What an incredible book!!!
