Blog Tour stop for this unique split perspective children's book.
"A curious little boy is convinced his dad is a monster. But, is he really? When we look through his dad’s eyes, we see a very different story. "
The Monstrous Me collection are split perspective books looking at situations from other points of view, helping children develop a sense of balance, roundedness and wellbeing.
Readers can literally and figuratively, turn the story on its head, and look at the very same situations from different angles.
In this second book, ‘My Daddy is a Monster’ a curious little boy is convinced his dad is a monster. But, is he really? When we look through his dad’s eyes, we see a very different story.
These childrens books are such an original, fresh and clever idea! we were thrilled as a family to read and review the 1st in the series on this blog
So we could not wait to get started on book 2! this time focusing on Daddy!
The story is a split perspective half of the book is from the child's perspective and the other from the adults.
In this read you see the daddy been a monster in the child's eyes, what they say and do and what they cook!! but just when you think your finished, half way through you flip the book and you read the same story but from daddy's point of view!
Just like the previous book I found this take on a children's story really clever and funny.
It has some charming rhymes and illustrations that are super colourful and each page has special things to find which my youngest really enjoyed!
These books should be a must for any household or learning setting and would make the perfect gift, they provide the wonderful opportunity to open the conversations with children about understanding and perspective, any books that spark the type of discussions these did in our house such as why dad should never cook!! are a winner to us! We are all very much looking forward to more in the series!
