More Ghost Stories

Speaking of Ghost Stories, I forgot to mention our Ghostly Reads display. Silly to scary; there’s a book for everyone. If your child enjoys mysteries we have lots to choose. There are classics from Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, Caldecott and other award winners, nonfiction, poetry and easy chapter books. We also have audiobooks and audio storytelling that bring the suspense to life for young readers.

Ghost Stories

Children can sharpen their storytelling skills at “Campfire Stories” on Tuesday, October 15th at 4:30PM. Participants will gather around a pretend campfire and take turns picking objects out of a story grab bag to add to a silly, spooky story. There will be a drawing activity and special snack afterward.

If you’d like to try this at home, here is the inspiration from Six Sisters Stuff:

Simple S’mores Recipe with an Indoor Campout (fire included)


Ghost stories and campfire stories capture the imagination of kids and offer a unique opportunity to shy students and reluctant speakers to relax and enjoy adding to a story. There really is no wrong way to tell a silly, scary story!

Here are some great websites to get your kids started…
