Hallowe’en fun with little ones

Printer-friendly version

Spot's Spooky FunDressing up, making magical memories and most importantly, having fun are all special experiences that should be enjoyed during family reading.  What better way to do this than celebrating Hallowe’en at Ballymun Library’s Book Clubs for Younger Children! The Baby, Wobbler and Toddler book clubs had dedicated themed story sessions last Tuesday, 24 October.  Most who attended dressed up for the occasion and had a ‘spooktacular’ time!

At the baby session, the book ‘Spot’s Spooky Fun’ by Eric Hill was read by Maria Sheahan (Librarian).  This is a lovely story where Spot has the tricky task of deciding which costume to dress up in for Hallowe’en.  The group was enthralled book proving this book is a perfect Hallowe’en read for young babies.

Noisy Spooky BookThe wobblers heard the story ‘Usborne Noisy Spooky Book’.  This picture book has an attached sound panel which brings an interactive element to the storytelling.  It was a big hit with the children who loved the ghoulish sound effects that accompany the story!

Room on the BroomFinally, Julia Donaldson’s and Axel Scheffler’s classic tale ‘Room on the Broom’ was read to the Toddler Book Club.  Maria used funny voices to act out the parts of the witch and all of the characters featured in the story.  The toddlers had great fun joining in and many borrowed the book to read at home.  Maria offered treats, bubbles and stickers to all children on the day.  Hallowe’en rhymes were also taught to the children after each storytelling session and they played with age appropriate toys.

Check out a few photos from our Hallowe'en book clubs:

We are back from Midterm break on Tuesday, 7 November with Baby Book Club running from 10.00am to 10.40am, Wobbler Book Club running from 11.00am to 11.45am and Toddler Book Club running from 12.00pm to 12.45pm.  We still have plenty of spaces especially in the Baby and Toddler sessions and there is no need to book in advance.
Looking forward to seeing you then!!
