This interactive pop-up book is perfect for the beginner reader. Haunted House, one of the best selling pop-up books of all time, will have children reading for hours. When the owner of the haunted house is feeling under the weather he calls the doctor to make a house call. But why exactly is he not feeling well? Could it have something to do with the ghosts in the closet, cockroaches in the oven, or the black cat in the attic?

After reading Haunted House to the class, have them draw and design their own haunted house. This could be a great activity around Halloween!
