Von, Two, Three, Four!

Ah, that’s FOUR. Four giggly-ghoulish counting books:

Little Goblins Ten by Pamela Jane
Illustrations by Jane Manning

Over in the forest
Where the trees hide the sun
Lived a big mommy monster
And her little monster one.
"Scare!" said the mommy;
"I scare," said the one.
So he scared and he scampered
Where the trees hide the sun.

From monsters to ghosties to goblins, everyone's favorite beasties haunt and howl and rattle their way through their forest home in this silly, spooky twist on the beloved nursery rhyme "Over in the Meadow."

Pamela Jane is the author of this fabulous book too:

(I have a signed copy.)

The 13 Nights of Halloween by Guy Vasilovich

On the first night of Halloween, what does your mummy give you? A bright, shiny Skeleton Key, of course!

In fact, for each of the thirteen nights leading up to the big night, your mummy is ready with gifts that include everything from singing skulls to demons dancing to icky eyeballs. The spookier and slimier, the better!

Ten Little Beasties By Ed Emberley and Rebecca Emberley

If there's one thing beasties love to do, it's dance! When one little beastie is joined by two little, three little, and more little beasties, we count UP until there's a party on the page. But when one of the little beastie starts trouble, it's time to start counting DOWN.

Count, Dagmar! by J.otto Seibold

Enables you to help Dagmar get ready for his party by helping him count friendly skeletons, silly monsters, and playful ghosts.

And we know how much I love little Dagmar:
