MONDAY: Leonardo the Terrible Monster

Leonardo is a terrible monster - and by that, I mean he isn't very good at being a monster. He is small and cute, so no one is very afraid of him. He decides that he will find the most skittish kid he can so he is guaranteed a victory. But Leonardo's victory isn't all it is cracked up to be. Leonardo has to decide how much he wants to be a fearsome monster.

This is my favorite Mo Willems book. My son giggles through the whole thing when we read it. While I don't generally go for scary, Halloween-ish books this time of year, Leonardo lets us do something for the season that is tame and fun with no risk of nightmares!

Check out Leonardo this October!
