   Fun Halloween story
Halloween - story is fun. It is fun to search for the ghosts hidden on each page. I would highly recommend! ''
   A fun twist on an old favorite!
Five Little Monkeys is a creative adaptation of Ten Timid Ghosts, but it has a twist. Not only do the ghosts return one by one, but they also go away. The fun text makes this a great book for small children but because it is a repetitive, playful story, older children also like it. It is a great tool to help you count as well. I recommend you guys definitely!
   OK but can be scary for littles!
Some of the photos in this book can be a bit scary for littles who are not in a fun Halloween, but more scary-moded Halloween. Some of the creatures in the story are not as scary as they could be for little children. The book is recommended for 4-6 year old children. The rhyme is for less than 4, but the story by itself is not a very good one. Basically, the foolish ghosts live in the haunted house and a scared witch scares them all out, then they come back and scare her as a group. Someone suggested that it was the same thing over and over and it is just like the old rhyme 10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. I had bought this as a gift for my small nieces, but I think I will keep it and donate it when I ask for books at the local library.
   Repetitive & boring
One of the simplest books I have ever read. My five-year old said, I don 't like this book! Why does every site say the same thing? !” So, this should give you an idea of what to expect.
   My toddler's favorite book
The first thing she did that morning was to run to the book and ask me to read it. She can 't get enough! At only 20 months, I was not sure that this would be suitable for her, but it ended up being perfect.
   Love this Book!!!
This is my FAVORITE book to read at story time and the kids really enjoy being involved in the story.
   A cute little rhyming book.
A cute little rhyming book that counts from 10. It is about a witch who moves into a haunted house and scares all the ghosts out. I am not sure if the witch bought the house, owned it in the first place, or just kicking the ghosts out... Either the witch or the ghosts are here in the wrong information, not enough to know so four stars..., but I like the mystery of it to let the audience decide, so I jumped back to 5.
   Big Hit in my Classroom!
There are so many Halloween books out there that it is hard to know what ones to pick. But this one turned out to be a HUGE hit with my 1-3rd graders Special Needs. It is repetitive so that they can read '', making predictions, rhyming and counting the ghosts are all great activities, but the fun illustrations really make the story! And for the more fearful in class, when we discussed the illustrations and observed that all the scary '' elements were merely masks or other tricks, it relieved a lot of pre-holiday anxiety in some of my littles... Pretty good for a simple children's book!
   Favorite Halloween Story!
Grandkids LOVE this story just!
   A cute holiday book for toddlers
Both my three-year-old son and me love this book. He knows how to count recently so he enjoys the book as he can count 1 to 10 ghosts. Besides, he won 't be scared by these ghosts, since they are timid.
