Reading I Need My Monster — Aloud October 11, 2010

Posted by flashlightblog in Book News, Reviews.

Everyone has a favorite children’s book. Sometimes it’s because of the words. And sometimes it’s because of the pictures. But sometimes it’s because of how dramatically the story can be read aloud. In other words — how cool or funny do the voices of the characters in the book sound when you read them.

The Colorado Association of Libraries included I Need My Monster in their “New Storytime Favorite” list, part of a panel entitled “Do I HAVE to Do Voices? Choosing and performing picture books in storytime that will keep kids engaged, enthusiastic, and most importantly, LISTENING!”

Their title is self evident. But you don’t need to be a librarian to have fun reading I Need My Monster aloud.

Or, as C. Van Hook, an Iowa librarian  said in her review “…one of the best books I have ever seen for teens [or anyone] to read to children… The monster voices are slurpy, silly, giggly, deep and just fun to make!”

So have fun, make noises, and scare yourself silly.
