A copy of My Monster Friends and Me was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review and opinion. This book will publish on Jan 1, 2020.
What My Kids Thought:
The illustrations in this book were so fun and the kids just loved it! I wasn’t able to turn the page until they had fully absorbed every detail! They were very interested in the idea of naming our monsters so they are not scary anymore. We talked about this quite a bit after we finished the book, so the idea did stick with them for a while!
What I Thought:
This book does a great job of giving children a tool to overcome their fears. It is discussed multiple times to help them remember what they can do. The illustrations were really great. I was even looking at them extra long just to take in all the details! The rhymes are times, a bit disjointed, but we forgave that because the book was so fun!
What’s This Book About Anyway?
A young boy goes through some of the monsters in his life, which are just what every little kid is scared of, a shadow, a monster under the bed, etc. He shows us that if we confront them and give them a name, they won’t be scary anymore.
Thank you to NetGalley and the Sourcebooks Kids for providing this ARC to me in exchange for my honest review.
