Creative book about literally deconstructing monsters until they aren't scary anymore. Neither Ms or Mx have ever struggled with fear of Monsters. (Ours looked like this, but wasn't the 25 yr anniversary one).

A good book to read to children who are afraid of monsters, the dark, etc. A great way to make them feel like they're in control of their fears. ( )

LOVE doing this one in storytime. The objects go in reverse order as we tell the monster to go away....so excellent with teaching sequencing! ( )

Book description
The Big Green Monster slowly appears - and is a bit scary! Fortunately, the reader has the control to make the monster disappear again, one piece at a time, and at the end, tells the monster he's not welcome to come back until the reader is ready.
This is a great book for talking about body parts (at least, from the neck up) and colors. It's also a good piece for an overall theme about monsters and how to work with them.
