Weekend Links

 It’s time for Weekend Links! This is my chance to share all the fun, inspiring and amazing kid-friendly links I have discovered in my Internet travels. As you would suspect, this week has been filled with discovering all sorts Halloween-related ideas, reads and activities. Here are a few of my favs:

I also adore these Graveyard Pudding Cups because they remind me so much of the Dig Your Own Hole treat activity. This activity was part of our Holes by Louis Sachar bookjump that JIAB intern Hannah Rials created.

Six Sister’s Stuff (say THAT 10 times fast) assures that your kids will love these Halloween Graveyard Pudding Cups!

We are also happily celebrating the impending Halloween holiday with KiteReader Author Donna Davies and All Hallow’s Eve Press Review & Giveaway.

Donna’ is kindly offering one lucky winner the chance to win her brand new book ByeBye Boogieman for some bedtime Halloween-ish reading. The giveaway ends 10/22 so scoot over here ASAP to enter to win. I’ve included some more ghoulish fun ideas on this post as well. AND if you visit author Donna Davis’ blog, she has tons of fun crafts to go along with her books!

Also on the JIAB blog this week is our Saturday Book Club Linky Party that has some VERY cute book/Halloween-related crafts, recipes and activities for kids. You can view the monthly Saturday Book Club Linky HERE.


This isn’t Halloween related, but I noticed this Berenstain Bears series on a BookBoard bookshelf this week. This series is among my favorites for great kids books with a great message.


And lastly….and this is sooooo important to the JIAB team-Book Or Treat.

Book or Treat is something I dreamed up last year as a creative way to combine the act of Trick-or-Treating and the giving of books to kids. Read how it all began HERE and please help us spread the word to encourage other families and communities to implement their own Book-or-Treat campaign!
