The book is about Farmer Brown, who does not like Halloween, getting scared by all the different noises he hears outside his window the night of Halloween. Meanwhile, all the farm animals are in the barn having a Halloween party. Eventually, Farmer Brown hears one of the noises and notices it sounds like one of his farm animals, so he goes to check it out and steps into the barn party only to find out he has won the BEST costume!
I would use this book for 2nd-4th grade. It is a cute book to read around Halloween because it has different costumes the animals are wearing and spooky noises that Farmer Brown hears during the night. This book, like Click, Clack,Moo, has much repetition in it. This allows students to become more involved in the reading and want to read it again and again! I think a fun activity you could do with this book is having the students pick out which animal they think had the BEST costume, draw a picture of it, and write why they think that animal should win.
