Halloween is a holiday children look forward to all year. The costumes, the parties, the excessive overeating - well, maybe that's only true of the characters in Frank Asch's delightful Halloween story, Popcorn. When Sam the Bear takes advantage of his parent's absence to host a Halloween party at his house, every one of his guests brings popcorn. When Sam pops all that popcorn that's when the fun begins! This book provides a lot of enjoyment for the emergent first/second grade reader and plenty of teaching opportunities for their instructor.
