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.
This was a charming tale about a little monster who has no friends. All the other kids are afraid of him because he is a monster - until someone isn't afraid anymore.
The story takes someone who feels alone and introduces him to a new friend. So it is a very cute book to share with young readers. It will teach about what it feels like to be an outsider (the sad sad monster) and what others can do to help them not feel sad. So there are both sides to this delightful tale.
The images throughout are bright and vibrant and the narration is fairly short so it would be a wonderful book to use for starting readers, plus it has a great message overall.
A very cute read!
