Synopsis of book: This friendly book is a fun way children can start to become proficient readers by reading about one of their biggest worries- bedtime! This book is a reminder to never be afraid of your monsters and has helpful hints for parents to help their children by exploring with early reading strategies at home.

MY REVIEW: This is such a cute book about those imagined monsters that all young children have dreams about... those scary huge ugly monsters that make sounds in the night. Author Alicia Lloyd has done a wonderful job in very few words of explaining to young readers what those scary little sounds really are.  Parents and teachers alike will appreciate the story, the language, and the key at the back of the book explaining why she chose those special words. Those few simple words not only tell a bang up story for early readers but they are designed to help the new reader to develop great reading skills. And that is something all parents and teachers will appreciate.

I give this simple picture book 4 stars for creativity, plot, and offering solid reading basics for new readers. This will be a great addition to any Picture book collection.
