It’s October and that means Halloween is just around the corner. Here are three fun books featuring monsters for the little monsters in your life.
Synopsis: Once upon a time, there were three little rascals who thought they were the BIGGEST, BADDEST monsters around. Then along came an even BIGGER monster who changed their minds. And all it took was two little words.
Book Thoughts: A sweet, charming story with a great message.
Synopsis: Stewart is a monster. He has wild, crazy, messy hair that’s perfect for scaring, collecting spiders, and hiding after-school treats. But when Stewart’s hair grows so long that things start getting lost in it, his parents decide it’s time to intervene. Stewart disagrees. His hair is awesome! But when Stewart’s hair keeps him from doing his very favorite thing, he realizes it might be time to reconsider.
Book Thoughts: A fun, entertaining, book that helps a child deal with fears ( of the haircut variety and otherwise).
Synopsis: Spike is a scary-looking salamander who keeps trying to frighten other animals—until he finds that using fear is not the best way to make friends. And since Spike lives in Mexico (he is an endangered species called the axolotl), this story is peppered with easy-to-understand Spanish words. In addition to a charming tale of friendship, this picture book contains nonfiction information about the axolotl and a Spanish/English glossary.
Book Thoughts: A sweet tale about friendship and judging others. The bi-lingual words add to the charm of this book.
Note– All three of these monster books can all be enjoyed year round and not just for Halloween, and that makes them even just a little more special.
