THE LITTLE OLD LADY WHO WAS NOT AFRAID OF ANYTHING is a great Halloween book for even the littlest kids. There's nothing here to really scare them, but it features a perfect Halloween setting: a dark night, a forest -- and even a "scary pumpkin head." The story and illustrations are solid enough, but it's really the noises that the shoes, pants, shirt, gloves, hat, and pumpkin head make along the way that will thrill kids. The sounds are repeated throughout the story, and kids will gleefully join in as they are read to.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
