THE BOOKS

In the companion picture books, The Problem with NOT Being Scared of Kids and The Problem with NOT Being Scared of Monsters by Dan Richards and illustrated by Robert Neubecker (Boyds Mill Press), kids discover the joys (and misunderstandings) of becoming friends with monsters.

“Intrepid monster lovers will delight in reading again and again this list of irksome consequences of being friendly with these creatures. The watercolor and pen cartoons do not miss a mark…Recommend this one to mischievous types of all shapes and sizes…” —School Library Journal

THE READ ALOUD & MONSTER FRIENDSHIP EVENT KIT
Use this kit in an early childhood or elementary classroom, library, or bookstore or at a child’s party or play date. Best for ages 3-7

This kit will give you the materials, preparation tips and suggested dialogue to:

• Introduce the idea that we can all be FOM or Friends of Monsters (and not scared by them).
• Hand out FOM badges that kids can wear around their necks and hang on their bedroom doorknobs to notify all monsters that the kids are ready to be friends.
• Hide paper cut-outs of the three main monsters for kids to find, befriend, and decorate.
• Prompt kids to imagine additional monster friends.

The kit also includes a poster and copy to advertise your event!
