Halloween -- a great chance to face your fears
Halloween can be downright terrifying for young children. They are just learning the boundary between truth and fiction, and those ghosts and zombies can seem so real. As children negotiate that boundary, things that are scary can also be deliciously fun. You can help your children work their way through scary feelings with some books that walk this line, too. These monster books show that children can be in charge of their fear, and enjoy the fun without getting overwhelmed.
