Monsters Are Afraid of Babies - Children's Book Review! #Halloween

The spooky store displays and monster shows are fun this time of year, but sometimes they can lead younger children to be legitimately scared! Show kids there's nothing to be afraid of this Halloween with the delightful picture book Monsters Are Afraid of Babies by Nicholas Tana, illustrated by Jessica Abbot and Elise Leutwyler.

In this humorous and boldly colorful read, children follow a boy who frightens the creatures in the closet with the help of his baby sister. Tana has created a universally meaningful message that disarms the figures that intimidate us. Monsters Are Afraid of Babies brings new perspective on the unknown, by humanizing those scary invisible creatures.

On a mission to inspire children and adults, Tana is debuting three new fiction titles that will enchant young audiences this fall. The upcoming Monsters Are Afraid of Babies, The Kingdom of Glee, and The Kitten, The Cat & The Apple will encourage literacy and evoke imagination in readers.

Lovers of Where the Wild Things Are, Goosebumps and Pixar’s Monster’s Inc., will tingle with terror reading this spooky story with a relevant sentiment on fear and anxiety. Monsters readers will delight in each page turn, filled with eye-catching artwork and playful rhyme.

A perfect Halloween-time picture book, Monsters Are Afraid of Babies:
  • Makes reading fun with whimsical wordplay and rhyme
  • Features vivid illustrations that will enthrall children
  • Creates meaningful metaphors about xenophobia, anxiety, and facing fear
  • Finds humor in adjusting to “new creatures” in the house

My thoughts:
Cute book! Both my girls said it was short, but it's meant to be that way. This book is perfect for kids from ages one to six. This book is great for Halloween and for all year round too! When you read it out loud to your child or grandchild, make sure to make the noises along with the book. It's makes it more fun and it helps to make the story come alive! And yes, Monsters are afraid of babies!
