Host a Little Ghost follows the adventure of twins Tommy and Suzie after an autumn whirlwind brings a new friend to teach them about caring, sharing, and the joy of the Halloween season. Intended for children of all ages, the book features sight words for beginning readers and rhyme schemes for more advanced children. As the book explains, when autumn arrives, a little ghost appears, looking for a loving home. For 13 days before Halloween, if children play nicely, share, and are responsible with their care, each morning they will receive a treat from their little ghost. If not, they will receive a note reminding them of good behavior.
"I glow in the dark!
We can play & read together!"

When Super Storm Sandy hit the New Jersey coastline, many townships had to cancel the tradition of trick-or-treat. But, students from this region remembered, it’s better to give than receive. These children rallied and worked in storm shelters, organized fundraisers, and often donated their own clothes and toys to local families in need. As teachers Lillian Stulich and Kevin McCormick watched these events unfold, inspiration for a new children’s book was born.
