Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-3. Horrible secrets, ghostly visitors, bloody fingers: this Reading Rainbow Reader is a thrilling anthology of seven previously published scary stories, including "Shivers" by Arnold Lobel, "Something at the Window" by Betsy Byars, and a folktale, "The Green Ribbon," retold by Alvin Schwartz, all with their original illustrations. Read this aloud and you'll get breathless attention; then make sure you have lots of copies for children to read for themselves. As Frog says to Toad in Lobel's story, it's a "warm good feeling" to hear scary stories and get the shivers when you're cozy and safe. Toad is not too sure. --Hazel Rochman
