I received a copy of Monster Boogie in exchange for my honest review.
We have been a fan of Laurie Berkner since our kids were very little, singing along with her music and even seeing her live on stage. I still remember going to a show nearby when my daughter was a toddler and we stomped along to one of our favorite songs, Monster Boogie!
And now, those fantastic lyrics are on the pages of Berkner’s new book, “Monster Boogie”! It’s fun to see the song on the pages of a picture book. The book itself is beautiful, measuring about 10″x10″, with a hard cover and colorful dust jacket. The images, by illustrator Ben Clanton, are fun and bright, and sure to entertain kids with monster antics.
The lyrics are fun for kids, as they boogie along with the monster.
I’m the biggest monster
that you’ve ever seen!
My eyes are purple
and my teeth are green.
I’m big and I’m scary,
you know what I mean?
And this is what I like to do…
Whether or not you are familiar with Berkner’s music, Monster Boogie is an awesome book for children. The words flow so well on the pages of the book, whether you speak them as a story or can’t resist singing it as a song.
This isn’t the first book by Laurie Berkner that is inspired by her songs, and I highly recommend both “Pillowland” and “We are the Dinosaurs” as well. What fun book for kids to enjoy along with a parent, sibling, or anyone else.
