My favorite books from the week 9.23.12

In this post I wanted to list some of the books I read this week to my sons and students.  Lots of them are read-aloud type stories.  Since it is beginning to get close to Halloween I found a couple of those stories as well.  I hope you enjoy some of my picks.
