The Halloween Mistake by Jan Salmon

Great book to prepare little ones for Halloween. It shows the preparation for the big night and how a first mate (daddy) will always help them through the rough parts. I can see fathers and pre-school sons looking through the unique art of the book and talking about the time they will have on Halloween. The rhyming text not only helps children remember the story, but makes it fun to read several times. Fathers will enjoy it too as it stresses the special bond they have with sons. This is a good seasonal read for little ones. And the fun of it is that they just might want to read it all year through.

About the author

Jan is a retired public school music teacher who now lives in Florida with her husband, Gary. They have two grown sons, Curt and Chris. She taught in Illinois, Colorado, and Michigan during her 28 year career.

She has always loved writing and often created songs, parodies, and original scripts for her musical productions when she was teaching. Writing a children’s book seemed a logical extension for her. Her story, The Halloween Mistake, is based on an incident in her own son’s life. This is her first book to be published. She also writes poetry, and has one short story that she would like to see in print. You may contact her at

To purchase the book, go to or Barnes and Noble
