The Lovereading4Kids comment

Join two little monsters in this new rhyming read-aloud from the beloved Jane Yolen about the snarfing, growling, hip-hopping way that monsters go to bed. Young children and parents alike will find much to identify with as they follow these lovable little monsters getting ready for bed. With wildly colourful illustrations full of whimsy and warmth, Kelly Murphy brings Jane Yolen's gently rhyming tale to rip-roaring life. This is a great read-aloud for bedtime. It is a brilliant, fun book - especially for boys! It features bright, exuberant illustrations by Kelly Murphy in her signature style.


Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters by Jane Yolen

Creep, gurgle, crawl, tumble! Meet two young monsters who are far from scary - they're too busy having fun! They go to school, play outside with their friends and eat after-school snacks. But like human children they also have a bedtime, whether they're ready for it or not.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
