I love reading and spent many a happy hour as a child curled up under my duvet, torch in hand reading fantastic tales that exported me to magical lands, other times and took me on great adventures. I want to pass that love of reading on to my children. I love it when you find a book that also teachers them something and I think my book of the month does this brilliantly.
Book of the month: Love Monster.
|Love monster by Rachel bright.|
Harper Collins. ISBN: 978-0-00-744546-2
I found this book in my school library and knew immediately that I had to bring it home to share with the boys. Firstly it has a super cute monster as the main character and secondly the illustrations are amazing! The story centers around Monster who is feeling very unloved because he is different from everyone else so he decides to do something and he goes out to find someone to love him. It follows monster on his hunt for love and the disappointments that he faces along the way until eventually when he is just about to give up and go home, love finds him...
I think that this story will appeal to parents as a brilliant love story! It almost brings a tear to your eye. A heart warming book perfect to snuggle up to your little ones with. But more seriously I really believe that to have peace in our society we must teach our children the importance of love and acceptance.
