One little monster waits for the first birthday guest to arrive. . . . There's a knock on the door, and now there are two! Now three! Now four! The guests keep arriving until fifty partying monsters wreak havoc and Monster Mom decides that enough is enough. The partygoers reluctantly depart until just that one little monster remains-after the best birthday party ever. Little ones can learn counting and basic math concepts while they're laughing over the rollicking rhymes and hilarious, energetic illustrations.

This is a cutebook abou monsters building number sense by counting. Teachers can utilize thise book by teaching students basic adding concepts. This is an appropriate book to use in an addition lesso plan for elementary students.
A fun romp through a monster birthday party, I love reading this book on birthdays in my class as much as they love engaging with it. (I teach special education elemnetary aged kids.) I have to admit, not to give the ending, but the couch with the bite taken out ... rip roaring fun. The only downside of the fabulous art is that when fifty monsters take the pages, some are on the edge and hard to find (and for teachers like me who adapt books for special kids, we need room to label). But otherwise, a solid read with great lesson planning potential.
