Synopsis: (from the publisher) "My monster mama loves me so! Let me tell you how I know.

At once tender and funny, this monster bedtime story is guaranteed to generate giggles, tickles, and plenty of monster hugs.

Craft ideas:
•  Make a Halloween card for your mom.
•  What do you want to be for Halloween? Draw!
•  Make a monster mask.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
