My favorite spooky stories to read in A Dark, Dark Room
Although this collection is slightly spooky, it also offers a lot of humor. Especially re-reading this now, I can't help but chuckle after each story. Additionally, Schwartz offers a Foreword for any of the more reluctant readers:
The collection of stories includes "The Teeth," "In The Graveyard," "The Green Ribbon," "In a Dark Dark Room," "The Night it Rained," "The Pirate," and "The Ghost of John. " One of my favorites, and perhaps the most well known story in the collection, is "The Green Ribbon." This story features a girl named Jenny who is known for the mysterious, signature green ribbon that she wears around her neck.

I've had a great time reading and re-reading these stories & I hope that you enjoy doing the same with your little ones!
