Monster at the End of This Book
The best books written to entertain young children have to contain text that is somewhat interactive, an interesting storyline, and a problem situation that most children can identify. This book must have had all the ingredients, because it was one of our absolute favorites when we were very young. Throughout the book, Grover (of Sesame Street fame) continues to panic because the title suggests that there is going to be a monster waiting for him at the end of the book. He attempts various constructions to halt the "page-turning" that will inevitably bring the monster closer, and as the pages are turned, the book turns into a bigger and bigger mess. Of course, the end is a surprise for kids, and continues to delight them every time the story is read. If you don't have this Little Golden Book already, I highly recommend it - may yours become as dog-eared as ours! - Jess
