Recently I was searching the library for one of my favorite Monster stories, Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley to use when teaching my "Shape Monster" lesson. As I was looking, I came across There Was An Old Monster! by Rebecca Emberley and Adrian Emberley. Now anyone who has been reading my recent posts knows that I have a thing for There Was An Old Lady, so of course I had to check this one out. My son and kindergarten students absolutely LOVED this silly story of a monster eating everything from ants who gave him "ants in his pants" to a lion who made the monster "no more". There's also a fun downloadable song from Scholastic to go along with the story. Your little monster lover will really enjoy this one!
