Creep, gurgle, crawl, tumble! Meet two young monsters who are far from scary - they're too busy having fun. They go to school, play outside with their friends, and eat after - school snacks. But they also have a bedtime, whether or not they're ready for it! Found out how they act when it's time to bed in Creepy Monster, Sleepy Monster.
My kids absolutely love Jane Yolen books. She has such fun books that they want to read tons of books by her. We love her series How do Dinosaur books. So when we found out about this book we had to check it out from the library. It is just like her other books it's well thought out and has a good rhyme that keeps kids going. My boys loved how it like a song and can sing it if you want. I loved that the monsters act just like my kids do for bed. They don't want to go. The illustrations are wonderful and colorful great for young kids. It's a must read for your monster.
How do you get your kids to sleep at night?
