Four children's books to read this Halloween


The nasty ghosts, gobins and ghouls of legends and lore come to life on the pages of Horrible Hauntings by Shirin Yim Bridges. Download the sister Horrible Hauntings app (available for free on iOS and Android devices), focus your smartphone on each page and enjoy as the ten 3D ghosts  spring into action, adding more clues to stories behind some of history's most famous ghosts.

My kids were especially spooked by Bloody Mary, who is rumored to drag you into a mirror, where you'll disappear forever - you'll even have to chant Bloody Mary three times to summon up her ghost on the app - and the Headless Horseman, who is said to be galloping around on his horse, ready to knock you down with a whack should you cross his path. This book is great for kids that aren't so scared of ghosts, ages 10 and up.
