If You're a Monster and You Know It
If You're a Monster and You Know It is going to start our week off just right! I can't wait to share this brand new book at morning meeting this morning. Ed Emberely has teamed up with his daughter Rebecca Emberley for a twist to the song If You're Happy and You Know It and you get a slight feeling of the Hokey Pokey. The reader will be snoring, growling, smacking, stomping, twitching, wiggling, and trying to put it together. Students need to move and will love the participation this book encourages. This book is also filled with vibrant illustrations in bold and bright hues, set against a black background. I was actually drawn to this book immediately because I think we could easily replicate the illustrations. There is a free download at Scholastic to help you sing along. Enjoy!
