Mercer Mayer is one of the most prolific, talented, beloved, and bestselling children's book authors and illustrators of all time. He began writing and illustrating children's books in 1966, and since that time, he has published over 300 titles. Open almost any of the award-winning author/illustrator's books, and out may pop dragons, cuddly monsters, wonderful creatures, and endearing critters. His legendary books and quintessential characters are classic favorites of kids and families around the globe and address timeless subjects that every child experiences, such as going to the dentist or being scared of big thunderstorms. Not only do the books provide great lessons, but Mr. Mayer also inserts his gentle humor into the books to show how the adorable critter and monster characters deal with common issues -- thus providing wonderful child development and socialization skills support within creative story-telling venues. Hometown: Roxbury, Connecticut.
As part of the Charlotte Mason homeschool method, we read quite a few books in a week. The ones my kids appreciate the most, however, are those with exciting characters, colorful illustrations and repetitive themes. "The Little Monster Fun and Learn Book" combines all the good stuff we love in a book with the learning that I admire.There are numerous mini stories within the book, each teaching basic preschool skills like counting and the alphabet. Since it's a Mercer Mayer book, there's also lots of talk about monsters (not the super scary kind.) My kids chucked a lot while I read this book to them, and they often take the book and read it to themselves -- making up much of the story to suit their imagination.I was surprised at how much use this book has gotten. The kids never put it down! For a cute gift idea for a preschooler (or even younger), or just a nice book to read to the kids before naps and bedtime, I highly suggest this book.Review: Lille Punkin Reviews
