It's mid-October and fall is officially here, which means that it's the perfect time to share some spooky autumn stories.
One of my favorite books to read aloud and to share with students during this time of the year is The Ghost-Eye Tree by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault. When a brother and sister are sent on a late-night errand by their mother one blustery fall evening, they realize that they'll have to pass by the Ghost-Eye Tree to reach their destination. They may think they're tough, but what will happen when they have to face the tree in the dark of night?
