When a monster is born, there are two possibilities. Either it's a faraway-in-the-forest monster OR it's an under-your-bed monster. If it's a faraway-in-the-forest monster, that's that. But if it's an under-your-bed monster...Well, you'll just have to read the book to find out what happens if it's an under-your-bed monster.
Sean Taylor's When a Monster is Born is a great book about the two kinds of monsters: those that live in the faraway forest and those that lurk under little kids' beds. Despite the content, this isn't a scary book. It's a humorous take on a scary subject that always elicits giggles from my students. There's also a guaranteed EEEEWWWW moment, but it's not what you might expect; the gross out moment involves the monster falling in love. Gross, right?
When a Monster is Born is a circular narrative that's sure to be a read-aloud favorite. If you read this book, there are two possibilities. Either you'll love it as much as I do OR you'll get gobbled up by one of those under-your-bed monsters.
