I was given the opportunity to receive a review copy of the book My Twins' First Halloween in exchange for an honest review. I was excited to take a look at this book which was as we were recently blessed with two new bundles of joy this past year. The book was written by a child who is now a teenager and was written from her 5 year old perspective. I think it is great to encourage early literacy and publishing skills as it encourages the skills to flourish as they grow.
My 4-year-old enjoyed the fun illustrations and family-centered Halloween theme as 5-year-old Paris Morris highlights her favorite Halloween activities, both classic and unique. This book however won't prep a little one for their own twins' first Halloween as Paris's twins appear to be three years old. There is a a strange plug in the middle of the book for Ghiradelli chocolate given to the children right before they leave to go trick or treating. I think it would have been fine to just indicate it was good chocolate instead redundant that it was "Ghiradelli... the good stuff". Still, with no big scares, Paris is fun and shows that the very best costumes don't always come from a store. A Paris pumpkin-carving template is also included which is a fun activity. It is the 8th book in a series by teen author Paris Morris. Paris and the twin adventures for Halloween were vibrant and in a few years we will have to dig this book out again when the twins are older and can appreciate the book and illustrations with big sister. Until then Happy Reading!
