Monster Needs a Costume by Paul Czajak. September 2013.
From Amazon: "It’s almost Halloween, and Monster needs to decide what he’s going to be. With so many options — a fireman, a ballerina, a cowboy, a ninja—how will he ever decide? In this playful, rhyming story, Monster shows young readers that sometimes being creative and daring to try something new are the best solutions."
My thoughts: This is the first book in the Monster & Me series (Monster Needs His Sleep was published in April, and Monster Needs a Christmas Tree just came out this month) and I'm very impressed. This new children's book author knows how to use rhymes that are really fun and don't feel forced. Every parent can relate to their child changing his/her mind. And with Halloween coming up soon it seems like each day they want to wear something different! I'll be on the lookout for more books by this author.
Do your kids have their Halloween costumes planned out yet?
Age: Toddler/Preschool and up
