Halloween           by Taeshanea Harris
              This year’s Halloween Carnival is going
              to be better than ever before. You can
              dress really scary like a dead mummy
              or a ghost. You can be a pretty fairy,
              for example, a tooth fairy, Tinkerbell,
              or Silver Mist. Or a princess, or a
              prince. You can dress silly like a
              tootsie roll, a pumpkin, or a tooth.

            All About the Book Store        by Bianca Lopez
