Beginning Reader Book Review: Monster Munchies
Written by: Laura Numeroff
Illustrated by: Nate Evans
Published by: Grolier Books, 1998
"Eleven blue monsters
in a band
eat the music
on their stand."
A funny, irreverent counting book featuring twenty different kinds of monsters (giant, tall, happy, slimy and more) with truly monstrous dietary habits! A brand-new Beginner Book from author of the mega-best-selling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie--Laura Numeroff!
* Author Laura Numeroff is the author of the popular children's book series "If You Give a____ a_____" (mouse a cookie, pig a party, moose a muffin, etc.). I didn't realize until I spotted this on the shelf at the library that she also wrote a beginning reading book. This book is part of the I Can Read It All By Myself series. Told in rhyme, this book shows different hungry monster and the various things that they eat. It helps to reinforce counting skills as the monsters increase from one to twenty. My son enjoyed the silliness of the monsters and the crazy things that they were eating.
* This book was borrowed from the library.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
