Back of Book:
Skeletons might seem frightening, but if you look closer, there’s nothing much to fear. They can’t run fast, they’re terrible at hide-and-seek, and they’re scared of everything. When a group of trick-or-treaters runs into an actual skeleton on an enchanted Halloween night, they do whatever they can get away. But what does the skeleton really want? What if they’re just looking for a friend?
I received a copy of this picture book from Page Street Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
If You Ever Meet a Skeleton by Rebecca Evans is a laugh-out-loud story that is perfect for the Halloween season. Each page of the story describes the none scary characteristics of the skeleton Each example discusses parts that the skeleton is missing like muscles, brains, and skin. At the end of the story, readers see that skeletons really want to have friends. The text is written using fun spooky rhyme and descriptive language. The illustrations by Katrin Dreiling are adorable and showcase pops of color throughout the nighttime landscape. If You Ever Meet a Skeleton is a perfect read-aloud for the classroom, or at home.
