Shake Dem Halloween Bones takes place on Halloween night. There is a Halloween Ball. Fairy Tale and Nursery Rhyme characters come to the ball. The dance is a great way to celebrate Halloween. The dance music has a hip-hop beat.
W. Nikola-Lisa’s picture book contains hip-hop rhymes. Children love the lyrics and happily chant the refrain. The lyrics are catchy. Also, children love to shake their Halloween bones to the beat.
Mike Reed illustrates the Halloween Ball. The familiar Nursery Rhyme and Fairy Tale characters arrive and dance as never seen by children. His drawings of Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the others are in vibrant colors.
Children love to name the different characters in Shake Dem Halloween Bones. They rise and dance like the characters. At the precise moment, they sing the refrain. Therefore, the book is not the correct book for a quiet bedtime read. Use the book to get children off the sofa for exercise. Also, children can sing and dance to the lyrics at a Halloween party of their own.
Shake Dem Halloween Bones has thirty-two pages. The target age group is children between four and eight. Yet, younger and older ones will enjoy it. It comes in hardcover and paperback formats.
