The Sad, Sad Monster

Monster is Sad. So Sad.

A sad monster is sad at school. He is sad because he doesn’t have any friends. Is there someone who can make him happy? The Sad, Sad Monster is a cute book for monster-loving toddlers through beginning readers. Simple sentences make this a perfect first reader.

I loved the austerity of the artwork because it fit the simplicity of the story that had such a huge lesson to impart. I felt my heart break for the monster reading it and my young daughter was very upset at how he was being treated. Something about the art and the story combined just make you want to reach out and hug him. It’s just a cute little book about friendship.

I think it’d be particularly useful in the classroom to teach how important it is to be kind to others, to reach out and befriend someone.

Thank you to Netgalley and Xist Publihing for allowing me to review this book.
