Halloween Book ~ Where's My Mummy?

I was sent Where's My Mummy? to review just in time for Halloween this year.   Written by Carolyn Crimi and illustrated by John Manders, this book is just spooky enough for your little ones.   With a repetitive nature, it is easy for young ones to follow along the story and quickly learn the words.

My favorite part of the book?  The illustrations.  They are just beautifully done, just a bit creepy in the good old Halloween fashion, but not too scary that kids will not enjoy.

Book Description ~

This gently spooky read-aloud treat is also a satisfying bedtime book — sure to delight the youngest reader on many a deep, dark night.

Little Baby Mummy wants just one more game of hide-and-shriek with Big Mama Mummy before bedtime. The night is deep and dark, full of friendly creatures that click their clacky teeth and whoosh past on flippy-floppy wings. But who will comfort Little Baby Mummy if a small, scritchy-scratchy someone gives him a scare? Big Mama Mummy, of course! Fresh, comical illustrations complement this everso- slightly suspenseful story with a satisfying ending.

Your child will truly enjoy this Halloween tail.  All kids will relate to Baby Mummy not wanting to go to bed.  Baby Mummy starts off his game in the cemetery, only to have a visitor come out and tell him to go to bed.  Saying he's not scared, he ventures off into other scary places.  Baby Mummy meets a variety of scary creatures without showing any fear.  

It's only when the most un-scary creature crosses his path does Baby Mummy call out in fear for his mummy.

I honestly get a kick of this story every time I read it.  Both  my daughters thought it was cute as well.  Retails for only $7.99 at Amazon.
