For a book filled with princesses, witches, ghosts and fairies, this Halloween-themed story is not of a spooky nature. The Walking Bathroom is a heartwarming tale of standing out and fitting in. Shauntay Grant, an award-winning author and spoken-word poet, easily delivers this message to young readers along with bright, animated illustrations by Erin Bennett Banks. Also, the diversity amongst the characters in the book is a welcome and much needed addition to children’s books today. You probably still saw many superheroes and princesses trick-or-treating this season, but after reading this story your kids will be emboldened to stand out from the crowd and develop independent minds.
