Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

There are many books about scary monsters, but in this lively bilingual picture book, a toddler actually becomes the scary monster when he has a temper tantrum. Kids will recognize how he enjoys toppling skyscrapers and crashing cars on his bedroom floor and then refuses to go to bed. He snuffles and screeches, grunts and twitches. And the line-and-colored-pencil pictures show all the transformations as the boy’s hair grows, a tail sprouts, and sharp claws jab from his fingertips. The wild action in the bilingual words is fun (English appears in black type on the top of the page; Spanish is in red type at the bottom), and so are the furious images. Then Dad scoops up the squirming monster and gently rocks him, tail and all, as Mama sings a soft lullaby. The final pages bring a cozy ending, and there is a wry last scene as Dad remembers being a little monster himself, and he grows a tail. A glossary of both Spanish and English words is included. Preschool-Grade 1. --Hazel Rochman --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
It's hard to go to bed when everyone else gets to stay up. Paul doesn't even realize how tired he is when his bedtime grumpiness turns him into a bedtime monster. But Mom and Dad understand. They help Paul settle down, and at the end, Dad reveals something which helps Paul realize that Mom and Dad aren't mad and that it's okay to struggle with bedtime sometimes. A comforting read. This book has the added bonus of being written in both English and Spanish which is a wonderful learning experience and allows for a bedtime story from an adult reader who may not read English fluently.

It's bedtime and Paul is not ready to go to bed, at least not yet. How can he go to bed when everyone else is still up? Soon, Paul becomes the bedtime monster! But his parents know just how to handle that. "Bedtime Monster" is an easy read in both English and Latin American Spanish and a recommended book particularly for those who are trying to expose their child to a second language.
