Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—This fourth installment in the innovative series invites young readers once again to share its whimsical vignettes (written in dialogue) with a peer or an adult. Perfect for Halloween, the stories all revolve around monsters, goblins, zombies, and ghouls. The selections are short, each running across a spread, and "voices" are color-coded and carefully positioned on the page so readers know when it's their turn. Despite its title, the book is hardly engineered to keep any child awake at night. Emberley's illustrations depict friendly fiends with lopsided smiles and silly features, and the fear/gross-out factors in the text are almost nonexistent. A solid choice for most libraries.—Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC

From Booklist

The fourth uproarious poetry picture book in Hoberman and Emberley's popular You Read to Me, I'll Read to You series continues the pattern of simple, rhyming, illustrated stories for two voices. This time, though, the stories are not playful, fractured versions of old rhymes and tales; they are new shivery tales to read together. The clear words with gorgeously gruesome, comic-style pictures tell of wild action and monster characters as lurid as they come--ghouls, ogres, zombies, skeletons, phantoms--all of them readers. In one double-page spread, the ghost and the mouse living together in a house are enemies, scared of each other, until they make up and read together. One spread is "Trick or Treat," and of course, this collection is a must for Halloween sharing. Gory rhymes with story. Hazel Rochman

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great series! I love this book. July 30 2013
By Monique
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My family has two other books in this series (the original book, and the fables). We love them all! My 7-year-old son is a good but sometimes reluctant reader, but he loves all of the books in this series. They are at about a Grade 1 or 2 reading level, but with a few more difficult words here and there (which is nice, though, to introduce some new vocabulary).

These tales are not too scary for my son; they're meant for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veeeeery Scaary! Sept. 16 2009
By Eileen Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the fourth of the "You Read to Me, I'll Read to You" books that I have bought and it is my favorite so far. I got one to have at my house to read to my grandchildren and liked it so much I ordered copies for each of the families. The stories are very short and a lot of fun to read. It's a good book for year round but will be especially good for Halloween.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even I don't mind re-reading this book Nov. 8 2007
By Lost between the lines - Published on Amazon.com
My daughter can't get enough of this book. She loves the silliness of the stories and gets to listen to my silly voices for the characters. I'll be looking for more like this. She even reads it to her little cousin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly Humorous! June 28 2012
By MWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Author, Mary Ann Hoberman and illustrator, Michael Emberley, have created a fourth book to add to their series of You Read to Me, I'll Read to You books. This book is different from Hoberman's other books in the series because it consists of brand-new scary stories where as her other books are versions of familiar fairy tales and rhymes. You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Together is a delightfully scary picture book written in two voices with alliteration and rhyme throughout. The book includes 15 spooky tales to read together. Don't worry, your bones won't shake too much because each story includes a bit of humor as well.

I find this book appropriate and fun for readers of all ages. Adults will enjoy it just as much as children. I read this book with the focus of using it with young English learners. You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Together meets that goal very well due to the color-coded words, large print, rhyme, alliteration, and illustrations that compliment the text on each page. Children can easily relate to and will enjoy the haunted characters and events. Older readers and adults will appreciate the humor as well. The illustrations are detailed and full of color bring each vampire, mummy, witch, goblin, skeleton, ghost, and ghoul to life.

As I mentioned before, I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. Children will enjoy the scary subject matter, tone set in two voices, rhythm and rhyme, and the kid-friendly illustrations. Older readers will enjoy being the characters, as they will laugh at the humor twisted in with the fright. I look forward to using this with my fourth grade students during the month of October for some read-aloud fun!

My 2nd grade students love these books! They enjoy the short stories within the book. Also, it helps them to practice their expression, fluency, and reading rate with a friend during literacy stations. A must have in the classroom.
