There's a Monster in Your Book - (Book Review)

 This picture book is so fun and adorable. I love reading it to my grandson! I have read it dozens of times and I am still not tired of reading it.

You can read this book anytime or you can read it during the Halloween/Fall season.

A cute, little monster has broken into the book. The reader needs to get him out! But the big question is . . . how do you do it?

There are instructions the reader must follow while reading . . . but will they work?

Shake the book, tickle the monster, even wiggle the book and much more. Will the monster ever leave?

I won't spoil the ending but it's well worth buying the book and reading it to children. The book is very interactive and kids love doing the crazy actions and making the loud noises.

The book is available on amazon:

I have created some question and answers sticks and writing prompts to go along with the book. Also, a cute monster craft is included. If you would like to extend the reading experience and comprehension with this book you can visit my TeachersPayTeachers store and review my product.

Happy Reading!
