It looks like there are two themes for this month: Halloween and the long overdue inclusion of some awesome writers. You need to expose your children to Arthur, as Marc Brown provides stories that can teach morals and remain entertaining. Brown has a gift of including humor that should make adults laugh along with their children. I believe that his wonderful show on PBS is one of the funniest series on television (if you do not believe me, check it out for a couple of episodes). I know I look forward to reading Marc Brown books with my children.
