The Witch Grows Up By: Norman Bridwell

When I started this blog in the spring and was thinking of books to use this book immediately popped in my head.  I knew I would have to wait to showcase it though until the Halloween season.
"The lady who lives next door is a witch. She is our friend."

The Witch Grows Up is one in a series of books about a witch and her little neighbor friends.    The illustrations are done in black and white with little pops of color here and there.  The pictures are really great and as a child I can remembering wishing I could have a neighbor that could conjure up such fun and exciting things!  Kids will love seeing the witch reminisce on growing up with her witch mom and wizard dad.  The author Norman Bridwell is also the author of the Clifford the big red dog books. (Great for beginner readers)  The Witch Grows Up will fit the season and bring smiles to the faces of all who decide to open in up to our little ones precious imaginations! If they love this witch book try finding some of the others in the series.  All of them are clever and silly and will be enjoyed by all. 

So get some giggles out of the kiddos today by asking them if they want to be tucked in by their own beds!
