The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
We really enjoyed reading this one.. I always love a good pun so this spooky take on a monster truck rally was a lot of fun.
I love finding books that push a little into the realm of a little spooky for kids. This book is all about the monster on the way to the kid’s house to eat him…or is he? I read this to my two and a half year old and we both loved it. The cuteness of the illustrations as well as how you read the book balance out the spook factor. But it makes for a really fun read.
The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots was last week. I had the opportunity to to attend the book launch with the author and illustrator of this beautiful picture book. You can read my full review here.
I think that this is a great book for a wide range of ages. My toddler seemed to enjoy listening and looking at the illustrations. The questions posed by the main characters in the book were good jumping off points for my nine year old daughter and I to think about ourselves. And the ending of the book definitely made me smile.
