Forget the children, I enjoy reading this book! It is a fun take on the struggles children have with learning and it’s hardly surprising they have a hard time concentrating, with the horde of monsters that lurk in school books, just waiting to distract them. My own little monsters have made me read this book, over and over; first to hear the funny rhymes, then to look at the pictures.
My three and four year olds have not yet tired of having it read to them. They love the colourful illustrations by Jamie Cowley and pick out their favourite monster on each page. We like Rita the best! My six year old also enjoyed reading this book herself and agreed that messy writing monsters do indeed exist. We all liked the happy ending but you’ll have to read it yourself to find out what happens. We’ll definitely be reading more books by Russ Brown.
You can buy ‘Monsters in my Math Book’ from Amazon.
