In a Dark, Dark Room and Other
Newly reillustrated, this classic I Can Read full of spooky stories is perfect for beginning readers who love a bit of a scare.
Victor Rivas’s silly and spooky art will introduce a new generation to stories inspired by traditional folktales like “The Teeth,” “In the Graveyard,” “The Green Ribbon,” “In A Dark, Dark Room,” “The Night It Rained,” “The Pirate,” and “The Ghost of John.”
The original edition has won many state awards and is an ALA Notable Children’s Book.
In a Dark, Dark Room is a Level Two I Can Read book, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help.
My favorite of the seven stories was "The Night It Rained". It is based off of the folktale called "The Ghostly Hitchhiker" and was spooky. What I loved about these stories is that they're creepy, but not too scary for children. It'll give them a fun fright.
Final Verdict: I recommend this to those children who love scary stories and are learning how to read. IN A DARK, DARK ROOM AND OTHER SCARY STORIES will stimulate their imagination and encourage children that reading is fun.
