Herbert is deeply doubtful about his first Halloween—but with a little help from his dad and a special tiger costume, Herbert might just find confidence on Halloween night. 

Together, father and son practice roaring, carve a pumpkin, and venture out in search of candy. And by the end of the night, Herbert finds his doubts have melted away. A sweet introduction to Halloween and to being brave, this book is sure to delight the youngest of trick-or-treaters.

A first Halloween must read! Halloween can be a little scary, especially if it's a child's first time experiencing trick or treating, dressing up etc. Herbert's First Halloween takes those worries, and fears, and puts them into an adorable story, with equally adorable illustrations. 

Herbert is unsure about what to except his first Halloween. He's a little anxious. Thanks to his dad's fun loving ways, Herbert realizes Halloween can be really fun and exciting. With the help of his dad, Herbert experiences carving his first pumpkin, making his first (adorable tiger) costume and even practices pretending to be a tiger. He even has fun dressing up with his dad to go trick or treating. Herbert has so much fun, he forgets that he's worried. He even knows what he's going to dress up as next Halloween.

This book is such an adorable story. With it's easy to read, and comprehend words, and down right cute illustrations, this book will help ease kids into the Halloween festivities and shows them what it's all about. A lot fun! I love that the dad's role in helping Herbert ease into Halloween traditions. Definitely worth picking up this cute story!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
