In this sweet little book, a monster tries to scare a young child. But the child insists the monster is not scary but actually quite huggable. (taken from Amazon)
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It will be available on March 17, 202
This book is so adorable! I requested it because I had a feeling my toddler would enjoy it. I read it aloud and he loved it.
The illustrations are charming in their simplicity. Told with very little dialogue, this book is about a monster who tries- and fails- to scare a child. He roars, growls, and shows off his horns and teeth. To the monster’s discomfiture, the child thinks he’s cute. What’s a monster to do?
What I liked best about this book was the ability to prompt my toddler to talk about the pictures and make conclusions based on what was happening. Because there isn’t much dialogue, my “little” made the monster sounds, talked about how cute the monster was, and had a lovely time. The book would probably be even more riveting to a slightly younger child, but my toddler still really liked it.
This would make a great baby shower gift. I recommend it for all little book lovers- in-training.
