MICKIE MATHEIS lives in a ghost-free but nonetheless spirited home in northeast Ohio with her husband and three young children. Growing up, the sound that soothed her to sleep at night was the furnace kicking on, which is still one of her favorite house sounds—along with the sleepy chatter of her children at bedtime. Mickie has written numerous licensed titles for young readers. Bedtime for Boo is her first original book.From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2-Baby Boo is the youngest member in a not-so-scary family of ghosts. They are going "a-haunting," and Boo is excited since this will be the first time he gets to join them. Flying in the night sky, playing hide-and-seek behind the clouds, and whistling "happy-ghost-lucky" songs are all great fun. But it is all soon over and time for bed. Boo isn't tired, but Mama Ghost has an idea to help him fall asleep: "Listen to the sounds of the house," she says. Ghosts float by, "whoosh, whoosh, whoosh." Bats are "flapping, flapping/And footsteps tapping-tapping, tapping." Doors creak, skeletons rattle, wolves howl, and monsters moan. And soon little Boo is asleep. Those sounds are a familiar part of his safe and warm home. This rhyming tale is rendered with acrylics in dark, but not frightening, hues. It is suitable as a fall bedtime story one-on-one, or paired with Halloween favorites such as Eve Bunting's Scary, Scary Halloween (Clarion, 1986) and Lucille Colandro's There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat (Scholastic, 2005) for lighthearted seasonal storytimes.-Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CAα(c) Copyright 2011.
