Taming Spooky Stories

Have you and your child been reading spooky stories under the stars for the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge? Telling spooky stories can be a great thing to do with your children. But knowing what is appropriate for your kids will keep them feeling safe. For younger kids, don’t make the story-telling location too dark; keep a light or two on. Use foreshadowing in your story so there are no big surprises. Make the ending something funny or silly, rather than gory.
