It's the time of the year when children start talking about what they'd like to wear for Halloween. It's also a season that many parents dread, because of the hassle and expense of coming up with costumes that will please their kids. The Children's Place (childrensplace.com can help; the family-friendly stores, located throughout the Chicago area offer a variety of costumes to outfit every trick-or-treater.
