I remembered!

Every Tuesday, I take Mr. S to a local Catholic homeschool co-op for enrichment classes.  We start the morning by going to Mass at 9am and then meet in a classroom to say the Pledge of Allegiance and some prayers (Our Father, Hail Mary, etc.) before the kids divide up into their age groups and start the art/music/drama rotation.  Sometimes, if there is a little extra time after we finish the pledge & prayers, one of the moms will read a story to the kids – and today the book she brought was the one I couldn’t remember yesterday!  It’s called The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams and Megan Lloyd.

It’s actually a very good book – another cumulative story, which kids love.  The reason I couldn’t remember it is that it’s not really a Halloween-ish book – when we read it last week, I remember thinking it was more of a fall tale.  It does feature a pumpkin head, but in the end it’s about a scarecrow rather than anything specific to Halloween.

Nevertheless, I take back my semi-disparaging comments yesterday and heartily recommend this book – just not necessarily for Halloween!
