"Why We Celebrate Halloween: A Short History" is a great little book to introduce kids (7-11, K-6) to the origin and history of Halloween. The book explores questions such as why we carve pumpkins, wear costumes or go trick or treating on Halloween. Halloween is described as a harvest festival, rooted in the Celtic celebration of Samhain. The book talks about how the original purpose of the festival was to celebrate the Autumn harvest and prepare for the coming winter. Recommended.
Autumn Blessing  The text reads : When hips and haws bring dwindling days, and fiery leaves set the land ablaze, kindle the fire and welcome all whose hearts respond to autumns call (copyright Danielle Barlow 2015)   Open Edition signed print from an original painting by me
I've always been fascinated by the history of holidays we celebrate. How did they begin? What do the different customs represent? This little book about the history of Halloween answers just that type of questions for kids. It explains the origins of the holiday, from the Celtic Samhain festival, in simple terms. It also includes why we wear costumes, carve pumpkins, and get candy on Halloween. It's a great book to read with little ones or to a class at school. #halloweenbooks #childrensbooks
