A rhyming counting book that is a perfect Halloween treat for toddlers!

Count up to 12 and down again in this colorful, lively, and not too scary Halloween board book! As bats glide and black cats hide, toddlers will be introduced to numbers as well as rhyming words. The catchy text makes the book a terrific read aloud, and the vividly colored holiday paintings are fun without being frightening.

Praise For Trick-or-Treat Countdown

"In a good Halloween choice for the youngest audience, a simple rhyming text and deeply colored illustrations count traditional Halloween items . . . this book makes an appealing addition to any Halloween collection."—The Horn Book Guide

"This is a playful title with participatory possibilities."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The vivid illustrations done in bold colors stretch from corner to corner on each page and the ghosts, witches, bats, etc., are only marginally menacing. . . . this attractive title will serve as a nonthreatening read-aloud for the preschool set."—School Library Journal

"The simple poem and recurring statement that this is all make-believe will reassure two- and three-year-olds, as will Letzig's bright illustrations, which have a toned-down spookiness just right for little ones."—Booklist
