If Your Monster Won’t Go to Bed by Denis Vega and Zachariah Ohora
If Your Monster Won’t Go to Bed by Denis Vega and Zachariah Ohora (2017)
When it comes to putting monsters to bed, don’t rely on parents—they’re no help with it comes to monsters. A series of tongue-in-cheek do’s and don’ts for getting your unruly monster off to bed include many asides and some body humor that will induce giggles with older listeners. Good for class visits and storytimes with older readers.
Themes/topics: monsters, bedtime, humor
Sample text from two spreads:
Step 6: In the key of screech, sing “Shock-a-Bye, Monster” and listen to those gigantic monster snores (along with the snores of your family and maybe even the whole block!).
