Halloween is upon us again. That may mean different things for different families, but one common thread is FUN! Especially for the youngest of our SpanglishBabies, it’s best to minimize the spooky when it comes to Halloween-themed activities and maximize the cute factor. That’s what the PlayTales app is offering this month: a chance to read some fun, not-so-scary Spanish ebooks to celebrate a favorite American holiday.
The first is La Fiesta de Halloween ($3.99), a great story about vampires, monsters, spiders, and more getting ready to have a Halloween party at a haunted house. The ghosts provide the tunes and the skeletons dance.
In La aprendiz de bruja ($1.99), a young girl is learning what it takes to become a witch. She mixes up potions and learns to fly on a broomstick. She practices spells on her cat and accidentally turns him into all kinds of odd things.
Lastly, Cazavampiros ($2.99) is a story about hunting for a vampiress in a creepy castle. It’s fun to search each room for clues and finally find the girl who’s guilty of stealing candies.
As with all PlayTales books, these Halloween stories are interactive and you can choose to read them yourself or have them read aloud. PlayTales offers options for ages 1-12, but these Halloween stories are appropriate for ages 4 and up.
All titles can be downloaded through the PlayTales app for the individual prices listed above, or through PlayTales Gold! app with a monthly, semi-annual, or annual subscription. PlayTales is available for Apple and Android.
NOTE: To find Spanish titles, go to “Store,” change language to español, then perform a search.
