My Thoughts:

This is a fun story to read in October to get into the Halloween/Fall spirit.
This story is about a little old lady that believes she is not afraid of anything. One day she goes into the woods by her house and finds a pair of boots, clomping around her. Which does not scare her. And as she heads home she discovers more articles of clothing that are moving on their own in an attempt to frighten her.
My children do not find the story scary. Not even when we get to the part where the little old lady does get frightened. What I like best about that part of the story is when she stands up to the thing that did scare her and is brave. I think it is a good example to show children that it is okay to be afraid sometimes, but you can be brave and stand up to the things that scare you.
My children enjoy doing all the body movements through out the story, like stomping their feet with the shoes, wiggling, shaking, clapping, and nodding.
And they laugh a lot at the ending of the story.
I think this is a fun, repetitive book to read with younger children. Pre-K through maybe 4th or 5th grade.
