Go Away Big Green Monster Book Based Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Halloween is just around the corner and things that go bump in the night can be quite scary for toddlers and preschoolers so for this week’s theme for the Virtual Book Club for Kids we’ve chosen Monsters giving you a chance to talk, interact and make those big green scary ones go away and be a little less scary for the kids. Our Featured Book this week is Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley a Caldecott Award winning Author and Artist.

In this fun book – Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley a scary monster appears, with sharp teeth and green skin and then by the magic of storytelling it slowly disappears making this a perfect book to help children deal with the fear of things that go bump in the night.

The die cutouts within the book make this is an interesting book to keep your child’s interest as you read through. I really like the simplicity of the language used and also the repetition and rhymes. A fun book that is part of a series now perfect for toddlers and early preschoolers.
