Jennifer Starkman, July 7, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Starkman)
Laura Leuck?s My Monster Mama Loves Me So is an engaging little story about the joys of the mother-child relationship, told from an unusual point of view: that of a little monster listing all of the ways that his ?monster mama? shows her love for him. While a few of the monster references may be too abstract for some children (e.g. an allusion to the monsters sleeping during the day and waking up at night), the vast majority of them will be very familiar to even the youngest kids.
Probably the greatest recommendation for this book, though, is that the preschoolers I have read it to have LOVED it, getting a real kick out of seeing so many familiar routines turned on their head and ?monsterized.? Not to mention the fact that they seem to particularly delight in the idea that they are ?brave enough? for a ?scary monster story??one that, thankfully for parents who don?t feel like dealing with nightmares, is not actually the least bit frightening at all.
