Just in case you are not all ready with a great holiday book here ya go.

Don't get dismayed with all the schlock holiday formula drek on the bookshelves this October. There are still great Halloween books to use just get past those new titles lists. We have a few favorites but when pressed to recommend we just have to introduce you, if you don't know, to One Witch. Totally excellent ink and watercolour illustrations coupled with rhyming couplets in a counting story for Halloween!! What more could you ask for? Lovable even under the age of one and transfixing for ages two and up.

One witch on a hill had any empty pot to fill...
get thee to the library and find out about her gruesome brew. (For even more book ideas see the list from kittenpie.)

ps.. tell me, have any of you ever used the worldcat searches? I mean I do think it's pretty cool you can just type in your zip or postal codes and find a book right in your library. But ya know, I'm a geek and all.
