If you're a monster and you know it, give a ROAR!

If you're a monster and you know it, give a ROAR!

If you're a monster and you know it,

and you really want to show it,

if you're a monster and you know it - give a ROAR!

Children's Literature

Brilliantly-colored and uniquely-shaped monsters dancing through the pages provide an opportunity for young children to sing and dance to the familiar tune, "If You're Happy And You Know It." Replacing their human parts for monster parts, children will enjoy turning their hands into claws and feet into paws while snarling and growling. The vivid text explodes over the pages reflecting the monsters' raucous behavior. Action words such as stomp, snort, twitch, and smack create a boisterous atmosphere for young mini-monsters. Preschoolers through second graders will express pleasure in practicing roaring, smacking, stomping, twitching, snorting, and growling. Children will delight in the foldout page at the end which creates a monster panorama. Use this title with young children who want to read about monsters but don't want to be scared. Librarians, teachers, parents and caregivers can help children with the wiggles by acting out this book with them. A variety of instructional opportunities involving vocabulary, colors, movement, and art projects make this a fun and versatile choice for story hour and reading at home. Reviewer: Nancy Baumann
