Dog and Bear are best friends who share lots of adventures together. This adventure takes them through the fun of Halloween. They have fun trying on costumes at the store, learning about mirrors, answering the door bell, eating candy, and surprising their friends with their costume choices. Three little stories are told about the two friends as they navigate the events that make up the traditions of Halloween. All of the stories have a surprise that children will love figuring out. Each of the stories flow together to help create amusing antics children will delight in. Bright colorful illustrations support the stories. The bold prints stand out and add humor and fun to the story. The child-like font is playful and easy to read. The large print and simple vocabulary will allow the younger children to comprehend the story and the beginning reader be able to read the story to themselves. The stories could also open up discussion about what children can expect for Halloween. It provides a fun glimpse into what can often be a scary holiday. I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
