Floppy hats and sloppy hats,
silly hats and frilly hats.

Flowered hats for bees to buzz in,
fussy hats from someone’s cousin.

Hats to cover up your toes
(those are socks as everyone knows).

Pinwheel hats and paper hats,
tall black hats to wear with spats.

It’s Halloween night! Bats and witches, ghosts and goblins march down the street to a great big Halloween party.

They make a circle, and suddenly, Halloween hats are everywhere!

The bouncy rhythm and exuberant pictures will make the reader want to pick up a hat and join the parade.
