Love Monster and The Perfect Present
I hate writing about books that aren’t everything I had hoped they would be. Especially, when it is a kids book.
The Love Monster was a major let down for us. I don’t know, maybe it’s because we aren’t into the whole cutie pie thing. Or, maybe it’s because this book proclaims that present day only comes once a year and that particular day is tomorrow. All the other days of the year are labeled as yesterday, day before yesterday, day after tomorrow and so forth.
Whatever the case may be, this book left me wishing my kids would never ask me to read it to them ever again. I should have found a hiding spot for it but I feared I’d never be able to find it in time to return it back to my local library.
Not everything about the book was bad. Love Monster from Cutesville learned a valuable lesson in that giving handmade items from the heart outweighs buying gifts from the store that really you can’t afford.
If you have a young daughter who is into bubbly hearts, shopping, and all things cute monster related than I would recommend this book. Otherwise, I advise to spend your nightly story time elsewhere, instead try reading Go Away Big Green Monster.
