Overview/Synopsis: "My house is full of monsters. They keep me on the run. Ready for the countdown? Let's go from ten to one!" The story continues following a child around the house as the monsters are frolicking and counted down.
Activities: What I usually do with this book is count the monsters on each page. Talk about the colors and the funny hiding places.
Why I Chose This Book: This book came from an author visit and it was a great choice. The rhymes are cute and the pictures are fun. We do love the counting and I think it has helped my son with learning his numbers.
