Young children are often scared of what they might see when you open the door on Halloween night. Here is an original Halloween poem to help them learn that the ghosts, witches, and even a shrew are all children just like them on Halloween…really very, very sweet.

Don’t Be Scared on Halloween

Halloween is October thirty-one
If you see witches, goblins, and maybe a shrew
You don’t have to run
For they are children just like you
When they come to the door
Don’t you run, remember it’s Halloween
You may hear screams and roars
From what you are about to see
Do not be scared from behind the door
It’s candy they like to eat
Don’t be surprised, they may be back for more
For they are really very, very sweet
