Back of Book:
A little witch named Delia has been looking forward all year to flying in the annual Witch Parade. When the rumors of rain come true and the other witches start complaining, Delia takes action. Using her best magic, Delia changes the rain to cats and dogs. At first this goes over quite well, but she quickly realizes the animals cause a few issues. She must change the rain again! This time to hats and clogs. And finally, she tries bats and frogs. But each new type of rain brings its own set of problems. How will Delia save the day?
This is the kind of fun picture book that should be read on Halloween. I am not a fan of reading scary stories to my Kindergartners. This story talks about the fun that witches are trying to have on Halloween. Children will love the fun mishaps that Delia gets herself into. The illustrations are detailed and will keep young readers busy looking at each page. The ending of the story is well written and allows readers to realize that they need to be careful what they wish for. I can see using this book for a unit study on rhyming as well as metaphors. Perfect read aloud for Halloween.
