October Thirty-One is the second installment of the illustrated children’s book series, Celebrate the HoliDates®, honoring American holidays and celebrations. Its sub-genre is elementary education and social science, customs, and traditions. This series is recommended for pre-kindergarten "Pre-K" through sixth-grade students.

Ways to celebrate Halloween are the focus, geared to preschoolers and young elementary readers. It’s an activity-filled escapade through calendar knowledge. Adventure is wrapped up in the anticipation of Halloween night when trick or treating and Halloween parties top off the day’s events.

The book explores the roots of Halloween and orients social studies students to the holiday’s past. Kids will learn about the historical connections to current traditions: Today’s rituals are linked to old Allhallowtide customs.

Discover fun activities like carving orange pumpkins that morph into jack-o’-lanterns and baking the European treat, Soul Cakes. These annual pastimes highlight American, Canadian, and English holiday traditions. World reference to the history of Halloween rounds out the title. The pages reveal a broad perspective of the cherished and exciting international celebration. Created as fun, educational stories, many with historical references, the books of the series are both entertaining and informative.
