I am very excited to share this book for StArt. Every Sunday we stop at the bookstore after our brunch and read a few books to Anna. My husband chose this one, and I was skeptical, because it’s rather long. But Anna was listening through all of it and said that she really wants to have it. It says on Amazon that this is the book for ages 8-11, but I assume that it’s about the reading level, not comprehension. In the book little witch Wendy is intimidated by her older sisters and thinks that she doesn’t have any “witch power”. A boy who lives nearby stops by at Halloween and helps her discover her powers. Anna loves it, and she is especially excited about the book, because she is going to be a witch for Halloween.
I found a reference to this craft from Family Fun on one of the blogs I read, but, unfortunately, I can’t recall which. If you read my blog, drop me a comment, so I can credit you. It was perfect for our Story Stretcher, even though Anna commented that this craft witch is a “bad witch”. Strangely, she was pretty much unfazed by the idea of putting a “bad witch” together. I am thinking that all those Halloween preparations sort of “desensitized” her to scary characters.
Here is a completed project and a picture of Anna discovering her own witch powers:
