There’s a monster in my closet,
with claws, and teeth, and hair,
and tonight, I’m going to scare him!
He lives just right through there…
Get ready to laugh as a young ninja heads into the closet to meet the monster that’s been so scary night after night! But what if things aren’t what they seem and our monster isn’t scary at all? What if our ninja hero is about to make a friend of strangest sort?
What child doesn’t think there is a monster in their closet or under their bed at some point. I know I did and I know my girls did. This picture book tackles that with some laugh out loud results. The boy in the story has just landed the role as a ninja in his school play and he is going to use that costume and new skills to catch that monster. The book is funny and perfect for read aloud. Be ready for some uncontrolled laughing when the monster passes gas and it smells like strawberries and lime. The story was funny and will hold the attention of the youngest listener through lower elementary aged kids. The illustrations were bright, cheery and eye catching. Overall this picture book is just as cute as can be and I think it would be a great gift idea for any little bookworm.

The Holiday Jingles board books are super cute, fun and interactive. They are mainly for the young listeners from toddler to preschool but really I think Kindergarten aged kids would have fun with these books also. Board books also make great beginning reader books since the sentence’s are short and the words are usually easy words and not difficult to read.
I found these 4 adorable books through my local library. So hop on over to your online library catalog and see if your’s has them. If so put them on hold and have a fun time dancing your way through story time. If your library doesn’t have them you might want to buy these books they are just that cute and ones I can see kids loving and wanting to listen to and read for years to come. They are priced at $5.99 each which makes it affordable to pick up a book here and there or all at once depending. These would also make a great gift for young kids this holiday season.
