I kind of giggled when I happened upon Monsters are Afraid of Babies by Nicholas Tana, illustrated by Jessica Abbot and Elise Leutwyler. It seems like such a fun and clever way to introduce a new sibling to your child who might be feeling kind of against sharing mom and dad with a little brother or sister. I’m excited to see how it goes.
For children ages 1-5 who like picture books and stories about monsters. For adults who like monster stories, Halloween, word play and rhyme. A great First Halloween book. A perfect fit for children adjusting to a new sibling--big brother/sister theme. For children and adults who enjoy humorous stories and boldly colorful illustrations. Useful to child therapists who may want to use the book to teach about anxiety as it relates to imaginary fears, xenophobia, and or the arrival of new siblings.
What are your thoughts on this book? Does it sound like something you’d be interested in requesting? Let me know in the comments!
