Book Description

Children Books. Vol.2 of "Monster books for kids" series.

5 star review: By Jane Jones

"Teaching Monsters is another cute book to help children learn from monsters that come in the night by Samantha Foster.
Giving children a rhyming book that helps them face monsters as friends, which helps them learn to control their fears and in this case it teaches them some very positive life lessons too.

The illustrations are colorful and fun to help the children see representations of things that they might fear. My preschoolers ask me to read it to them often, which means it is one of the books that they enjoy the most as they learn through repetition. I have used it for only a couple of weeks in my classroom and some of the children know what monsters comes next and what each one helps them learn.

As a preschool educator, I highly recommend it to parents of children from ages three and up."

This wonderful rhyming story reminds children that the monsters that come out at night are not really scary. In fact, they are there to help teach valuable lessons about life.

There is the Hearing Monster who is covered with ears that teaches kids how to take time to listen to their parents.

The School Monster who shows why school is the cool place to be.

The Vegetable Monster, the Rules Monster and finally the biggest Monster of them all, the Friend Monster are all part of this wonderful tale that is told in loving fashion.


The lesson behind this rhyming book is how the monsters we may see at night are mere reflections of the fears kids have in their own day to day lives.

The author shows real insight into the mind of a child and manages to translate what children see as scary to the fears they actually have in their mind.

While the very little ones might not fully understand the connection at first, the delightful way this story is told will surely entertain them until they do realize that what goes bump in the night means more than just what’s in their room.
This is a perfect childrens book by age 5-8.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Monsters reach out to teach because they care!' May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Samantha Foster has the most fun ways of teaching children values and ideas. She takes a potentially challenging idea (monsters in this case) and turns that around into something not to fear but from which to learn.

She starts with the Hearing Monster who has many ears - the point being that children should listen to all their peers AND their parents. There is the School Monster who simply wants children to do everything the teacher asks so that homework will become easy. There is a Vegetable Monster who encourages replacing vegetables for candy and sodas, eating as much vegetables as you please to make the body strong. The Rules Monster encourages children to do what is right. And finally there is the Friend Monster who `wants you to be friends with everyone so no one will feel blue.'

The point Foster is making with this beautifully illustrated well rhymed book is that things children may think are monsters are in truth helpers `to teach you to do what is right.' This is a fun book that children will love and learn to overcome fears and discover the life enhancements that are outlined so well. Grady Harp, May 13

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book with five important lessons May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Samantha Foster's second delightful monster book with fun drawings is an excellent way to stop kids from fearing monsters and it teaches them valuable lessons about how to behave. The book shows that monsters really aren't scary at all. They are not mean. They do not want to harm children. They are friendly. They come to help kids. The book tells us about five different monsters, including the school and vegetable monsters, and what each of the five wants kids to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monsters aren't so scary after all May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In "Monsters Come Out to Play," the first story in author Samantha Foster's "My Monsters" series, kids learned that monsters had feelings too, and that monsters are only as scary as you let them be. The story in "Teaching Monsters" reinforces that positive image of the often maligned creatures of the night and shows that monsters are there because they care about kids and want them to do well in life.

It's an enjoyable rhyming story with colorful illustrations that your kids may pick as one of their favorite bedtime stories, especially for those nights when they start thinking about scary things that may be hiding in their closet or under the bed.

The author supplied me with a copy of this manuscript with no request for a review. The views expressed in this review are my honest opinion and not influenced by her gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lessons from monsters May 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Teaching children life lessons by using monsters is a fun way to learn. For example, to name several in Teaching Monsters: children learn how to be friends, follow rules, eat their veggies, and be good students.

The illustrations are outstanding, which will keep children engaged and wanting to re-read the book over and over again.

More About the Author

I have imagined, weaved and wrote stories for as long as I can remember. Every child is born imaginative and although I did not know that as a child, having been a primary school teacher for many years and raising three kids has made me realize it.

As a child I had been a daydreamer, a hypothetical theorist and a wanderer. Thinking, imagining characters and creating moments came to me naturally but albeit that didn't transform into conscious writing until I grew up. As a 37 year old mother of four, today I have much more perseverance and determination that drives my passion for writing. It triggers my imagination further and the more a writer lets her thoughts take the driving seat, the better quality of art is created, I guess.

I am very much like any other mother. I love my children and have a tough time trying to manage all four and I do not really find much respite at work since there too I have plenty of kids to manage. Being amidst kids for almost my entire life, the first phase being a child myself and then the second phase being a mother, teacher, friend and guide to children, I have been able to hone more of my writing skills than what I perhaps wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. With children all around you, it is easy to marvel at the finer things of life. For them, the materials matter least and all they have are their minds and their creations, however harmonious or chaotic that might be.

As a writer, I sincerely believe that stories are all around you, dying to be told and all one needs is the keen attention to observe life, reality and emotions.
Every day is full of moments that can make people laugh, cry, to be depressed or ecstatic. For me, the job of a writer is to tell stories in a manner which can allow readers to feel, more than anything else. Intrigue, excitement, fondness or pleasure, are all outcomes of how a reader relates to a work of fiction or nonfiction. I consistently strive to incite the emotional connect between everything, be it family, work, relationships or writing.

My works are a combination of pure fiction and fiction inspired or loosely based on reality. Every writer gets inspired by something and I have a pretty interestingly challenging world around me with plenty of inspirations.
