In this episode, we watched the movie, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and compared it to the classic short stories written by Alvin Schwartz. We talk about the folklore from which the stories originated and discuss the monsters in the illustrations by Stephen Gammel and the adapted ones in the film. We introduce Jena to these scary stories that we grew up with and traumatize her with the illustrations.
