We’ve paired our best-selling Scary Places narrative nonfiction titles with our Cold Whispers fiction books!

The Common Core (9th anchor reading standard for each grade) recommends that students be exposed to topically related texts, with content that can be compared and contrasted, to develop analytic and general thinking skills. To help educators in this regard, a teaching guide for the pairings is available for each product.

Each Teacher’s Guide offers:

• Ways to help students compare and contrast elements of fiction versus historical nonfiction
• Ideas for writing about the similarities and differences between the topically related stories in Cold Whispers and the nonfiction anecdotes in Scary Places

Contains the following 8 Scary Places titles: Abandoned Amusement Parks, Eerie Inns, Ghost Towns, Haunted Caves, Haunted Houses, Spooky Cemeteries, Tragic Theaters, and Wretched Ruins; and these 8 Cold Whispers titles: The Doomed Amusement Park, The Ghost at the Grand Inn, Terror at the Ghost Town Mine, The Horror in the Cave, Curse of the Haunted House, Night of the Gravedigger, The Secret of the Tragic Theater, and Beware The Pharaoh’s Tomb.

Booklist Review for The Doomed Amusement Park

Twelve-year-old Leo Colsen awakes from a frightening dream, where he was walking through a haunted fun house to the sound of a soft voice seeking help and giving him directions. Leo, believing the desperate cry is real, scribbles down the directions and hops on his bike. At the end of a dirt road, he finds an old-fashioned, fully functioning amusement park! In the fun house, he hears the same soft cry for help from his dream. One week later, Leo returns with two friends, but all they find is an abandoned amusement park with the ruins of a fun house and a rusted memorial sign for a boy who died there years earlier in a fire. The book’s oversize format, large font, broad white borders, and plentiful colored illustrations make it ideal for reluctant readers or those transitioning to chapter books. Highlighted vocabulary is collected in a glossary, and discussion questions follow the story. Part of the Cold Whispers series, this tale has just enough ghoulish fright and will attract adventuresome readers.
