Snow Fairy Princess
I love looking back at her sweet face and seeing the changes that have occurred with each passing year. This year was the first one to move out of the princess/fairy world and enter into a spookier world - Dark Ninja! She has already told me to be prepared for next year because she is planning on being a vampire.
We have no trouble at our house deciding on what to be for Halloween and have never changed our minds, but I have heard of children that come up with at least ten different costume ideas and have trouble choosing just one. Well if this sounds like your child, we have the most perfect book recommendation for you - Monster Needs a Costume by Paul Czajak illustrated by Wendy Grieb
Jabberwocky Bookshop. We had a great time making a monster mask, talking with the author, listening to the story being read aloud and enjoying some yummy cake.
I am always inspired when I meet a children's book author especially when he is celebrating his very first picture book. Emmy and I love to hear how an author gets his idea for a book and Paul's story was interesting indeed as his idea came straight from his daughter. Listening to his daughter play in the back seat of the car, he heard her say to her doll, "My monster needs a haircut." From those five words began a series of books about Monster.
Take a peek at this very endearing book. We hope it finds a place in your hearts as it has in ours...
Emmy and I are very excited for book two in the Monster & Me series, Monster Needs His Sleep, coming out in April 2014.
