I remember reading the Georgie books all through my childhood and was so excited to find some when I started teaching kindergarten. I loved sharing books that meant a lot to me with a new batch of kids every year.
The first Georgie book was published in 1944 and 11 more followed. They all involved Mr & Mrs. Whittaker, the owners of the house that Georgie haunts, Miss Oliver the owl, Herman the cat, and of course Georgie, the friendly ghost.
In Georgie and the Noisy Ghost, written in 1971, Georgie & crew move out to a house on the beach that the Whittakers have rented for the summer. Everyone knows that houses should only have one ghost haunting them. So what happens when a family with a ghost moves into a house that is already occupied by another spirit?
First they travel by car,
then by boat. What? Don’t you arrive at your new house in the middle of the night?
But wait, who’s that!
You’ll just have to read it yourself:)
One thing to keep in mind with these books – they do tend to be a bit wordy so if you’ve got avid listeners, you’re good. Otherwise, you might want to paraphrase or plan to read it in stages.
