Quit Calling Me a Monster!
by Jory John; illustrated by Bob Shea
Poor guy, he gets called a monster all the time, and he is sick of it. Who wants to be called a monster? Especially when your name is Floyd Peterson! Who cares if technically you are a monster, it still isn’t nice. This is a fun, and funny picture book, which will make a great read aloud. Jory and Bob are quite some team. Ages 3 - 6.
Have you seen Elephant?
by David Barrow

The NOT So Quiet Library
by Zachariah Ohora
Another monster makes an appearance in this picture book. Oskar and Theodore have a Saturday routine – they visit the library with Dad for some quiet reading. Quiet is not to be this week, when a loud, book eating monster appears. Havoc ensues, “concluding with a satisfying lesson and a car full of books, this over-the-top library fantasy should fit the storytime bill nicely” (Booklist). Ages 3 – 6.
