SIPPING SPIDERS THROUGH A STRAW by Kelly DiPUcchio


SIPPING SPIDERS THROUGH A STRAW:  CAMPFIRE SONGS FOR MONSTERS by Kelly DiPucchio is a fun book for the week of Halloween.  But I think kids would enjoy it all year long.  I know that song books are quite popular with kids. TAKE ME OUT OF THE BATHTUB and other books by Alan Katz become quick favorites with whichever group of kids I introduce them to. Playing with the lyrics of well-known songs to create amusing new songs is quite fun! Kids never seem to tire of singing the same favorites over and over.

SIPPING SPIDERS THROUGH A STRAW is a book in which the author writes new, monster versions of favorite campsongs.  Songs include Do Your Guts Hang Low?, If You're Scary and You Know It, Clap Your Paws, and 99 Bottles of Blood on the Wall.  Very creative and fun. Kids will love them!  And the illustrations are a perfect match. Many shades of brown with a hint of green every so often.  They are spooky with enough humor to keep them from being scary for kids.
