Blurb: (Our American Holidays) Hallowe'en
Its origin, spirit, celebration, and significance as related in prose and verse, together with Hallowe'en stories, plays, pantomimes; and suggestions for games, stunts, parties, feasts, and decorations.
The addition of a book on Hallowe'en to Our American Holiday Series will be welcome to many parents, teachers, and recreational leaders who have used Mr. Schauffler's other anthologies with such success and pleasure.
Few dark days in the year provide as much delight to youngsters as does Hallowe'en. It is the one celebration without a lesson or a moral--when the imagination is allowed full play, when jolly games and robust sports abound, when myths and legends are listened to eagerly, when gay colors decorate the play room and a festive spirit prevails.
This book is a generous grab-bag of Hallowe'en suggestions in which the hostess or teacher will find a wealth of program material and many delightful ideas. Stories to be read aloud, plays to be acted by children of all ages, poems to be read or recited, and games of all sorts promise a merry Hallowe'en.
