Any fan of Disney’s Monster’s Inc will love this book. It’s filled with fun, colorful, playful monsters enjoying a day at the park. The text is simple and has a wonderful rhyming flow that small children will love, perfect for reading aloud. We follow the little monsters through an entire day of play as they slide, hop, tumble, run, teeter and totter, swing, and piggy-back ride. At the end of a long day, they share monster-sicles.
There are many unique monsters in the story (all of them nice and friendly), but if you search each page, the same red and yellow friends can be found in every scene. At the end of the day, monsters get grumpy, as tired little monsters tend to do. After an apology, everything is all better and little monsters go home.
