A Mama's A Mama...

No matter how hairy! Laura Leuck's My Monster Mama Loves Me So shows a hairy, green three-eyed (but sweet) monster Mama caring for her monster son, and illustrates all the ways that she loves him.

The rhyming text is fun and lively, and we especially like the "... takes me to the swamp to swim," part. Our kids are also fans of the fact that "the scary things" that scare the monsters are children! And, having the monsters roast hot dogs in front of a roaring fire, reading books and singing songs really makes them seem familiar and not at all scary.

Mark Buehner's illustrations really make the book shine. This one's a keeper—fun for Halloween, or really, any time of year.
