Creepy Chicago – Book Review


[amazon_link id="1933272287" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Creepy Chicago: A Ghosthunter's Tales of the City's Scariest Sites[/amazon_link]

Kids! As you research your family history, have you heard any ghost stories? Do you enjoy reading about ghosts in different cities around the country and world? If so, Ursula Bielski's book [amazon_link id="1933272287" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Creepy Chicago[/amazon_link] is for you. This book was written for kids aged 8-12 and is a very quick read. Even as an adult reading it and knowing about many of these stories, I still learned a few things about haunted Chicago.

 The book is laid out in short chapters so even younger children can read a little at a time. The print is larger and there are some kid-friendly pictures throughout the book. The book also includes a Ghostly Glossary; Ghosthunter Tool list; Interview Questions for Witnesses; and Recommended Reading.

If you are a fan of ghost stories or live in the Chicago area this is a must read. Pick up a copy today, grab a flashlight, crawl under a blanket and read......if you dare!
