1. The Monster- I love so many things about Love Monster but mostly how relatable he is for kids.
2. To Share of Not To Share- The inner conflict here is spot on. What kid (or adult) hasn't had this exact dilemma?
3. The Guilt Page- My favorite page in the book. You have to pay attention to the illustrations to appreciate the humor.
4. The Ultimate Chocolate Selection- Love Monster's favorite might be the Double Chocolate Strawberry Swirl but I'm eyeing the Raspberry Heart...and the Peanut Butter Crunch...and the Double Toffee Diamond...
5. The Ending: After all of the internal struggle, Love Monster learns what it means to be a great friend.
Parents: Great news: There are other Love Monster books! Love Monster, Love Monster and the Perfect Present, and Love Monster and the Scary Something - all equally fabulous!
Teachers: Making predictions, Morning Meeting discussion on sharing/kindness
Writers: How to make the author's message fun enough that it is clearly stated but doesn't outshine the enjoyment of reading the story, great character, character driven story
