Skeleton Hiccups
Margery Cuyler and S.D. Schindler

What can a skeleton do if he wakes up with the hiccups? He can’t hold his breath, can’t eat sugar… The only option is to scare the hiccups away! But what can scare a skeleton?

This picture book is perfect to practice basic verb conjugation and Halloween-themed vocabulary. It could be used in a teaching unit around Halloween, either read aloud by teachers or students. Because of the short and simple sentences along with expressive illustrations, the story is suited for young readers.
