Tomorrow is Halloween and I’m planning to tell a couple of ghost stories to my Wednesday classes! There are some spooky fun tales for young children that are exciting and a little bit scary, but not so much that would keep them awake at night.
There are two stories that I’d recommend for the under 12 crowd:
- The Boy and the Ghost an African-American tale There is a beautiful retelling of this by Robert D. Dan Souci by the same name.
- The Teeny Tiny Woman This classic ghost tales always helps kids get in the Halloween mood. Paul Galdone’s version is my favourite.
