This book had some really cute poems. It would be great to read children around halloween time.
Monster Museum is a book of several different poems about a large array of scary creatures, including ghosts, werewolves, zombies, ogres, and even man eating plants. The first poem welcomes the reader to the Monster Museum and invites them along on a tour filled with creepy surprises. Each poem describes the monsters and creatures in a fun entertaining way that children will find amusing. When describing the werewolf the author warns ¿if you meet a werewolf late at night, do not invite him for a bite¿, In a poem about Bigfoot getting married, the groom and bride are described as shaggy and howling while the knot is tied. The Giant is a delicate issue because he might be inclined to squish you. This book is filled with every beast, monster, and mythical creature ever mentioned. I am planning to be a an elementary teacher in the near future. I am always looking for books that would be great to read to my students. This book of poems would certainly be a book I would read to my students at Halloween. The illustrations are fun to look at, the poems are well written and could be described as lyric poems. The poems sing, they will make you laugh, and make children look at monsters in a different light. At Halloween this would be a wonderful book to read to the children. Children could then make masks of the creatures they liked best. This would also be a wonderful opportunity to teach children about museums. The children could then draw pictures of their favorite creatures and make frames out of popsicle sticks for the pictures. The pictures would look like they were going to be hung in a museum. The teacher could then hang the pictures on the wall of the classroom.
This book is great on so many levels. The poetry is very creative and the illustrations are phenomenal!
