Funny and engaging for children, who can empathize with the familiar character of Grover.

This was one of those books that my son loved so much he asked for it night after night. I read it so often, I had it memorized! ( )

Growing up, my family didn't have cable, which was the only way to watch 'Sesame Street' in Austria at the time and thus, I grew up without Grover, Big Bird, Ernie and all the other wonderful characters on the show. It is something I will always regret and something I will not do to my children. However, every now and then, my aunts would send me picture books featuring some of the Sesame Street characters.The book grabs your attention from the very first line, with Grover teasing your child's curiosity about a potential monster at the end of the book, all the while begging your child NOT to turn the page. It allows and encourages disobedience in a humorous way but also encourages to keep reading, which might be very helpful with children who are struggling. It also teaches the reader to finish what you start, to foster a healthy sense of curiosity, and not to let fear keep you from seeing something through. ( )
