Tis' the Season for the Shivers

With such fall weather setting the stage, classes from PreK through 5th grade have been listening to stormy and spooky stories during our library classes.  We have enjoyed the exceptionally written "The Dark" by Lemony Snicket and illustrations by Jon Klassen.  It is a perfect study in how to build suspense through both text and illustration.  And for a bit of color and sweetness we have enjoyed "Vunce Upon a Time" by J. Otto Siebold and illustrated by Siobhan Vivian about Dagmar, a vegetarian, candy-loving vampire.

5th grade classes have listened to and discussed scary stories from folklore with an understanding of why we tell scary stories and urban myths.
