With Halloween just a few days away, I wanted share this wonderful festive idea: All Hallow’s Read. Instead of (or in addition to) giving out candy, give a book this Halloween.
While the concept isn’t exactly new and, in fact, I just met someone who’s been giving out books to kids in her neighborhood for almost two decades (and I’m helping her out!), I’m glad the idea is getting some traction.
Who better to lead this effort than Neil Gaiman himself? While I’ve never been a fan of his books, I’ve got to admit he’s wildly creative. Watch this hilarious video explaining what All Hallow’s Read is all about.
As I was writing this, I learned about another cool thing Neil Gaiman is doing for All Hallow’s Read in partnership with Audible and that benefits DonorsChoose.org. Intrigued? Read his blog post for more information!
What scary story would you give out on All Hallow’s Read?
