Check It Out: The Monsterator

With Halloween just around the corner, we decided that it was the perfect time to read the new Keith Graves book The Monsterator

This charmingly spooky book shares the story of Master Edgar Dreadbury, a boy bored with Halloween. When Edgar discovers The Monsterator, a machine that changes people into monsters he decides to becomes a scary creature. But when it's time to turn back into himself, the machine is gone and Edgar must learn to enjoy his new life as a monster.

BONUS: This interactive book includes mix-and-match pages with endless possibilities for make-your-own monsters. This neat feature kept Jack entertainted long enough for me to feed Dylan!

Check It Out: And Two Boys Booed

We've been reading tons of new books lately. Stay tuned for two more favorites coming up in the next couple of weeks. 

From Judith Viorst author of Alexander and the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day comes a new interactive picture book for young children. And Two Boys Booed shares the story of a boy participating in a school talent show. The boy has practiced singing his song a billion times but he as his turn to perform quickly approaches he gets more and more nervous.  

Filled with fun flaps to lift, this unique book teaches children to overcome fears and develop confidence. The repetitive text allows kids to follow and memorize the story easily. 

Jack was so intrigued by these flaps. He hadn't owned this type of book since he was a baby.
