From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K-This book features 26 odd and goofy monsters acting like preschoolers-jumping rope, playing in the sandbox, having a snack, etc. The creatures come in various shapes, colors, and sizes, and have strange snouts and googly eyes. Bold and dynamic, Parkins's acrylic-and-alkyd paintings appear on spreads with lots of white space. Although the monsters may be gross ("Drew blows beetles from his nose"), they are hardly scary, making this an enjoyable concept book. Like children, these monsters even learn their ABCs from a book, where they discover the strangest creature of all. "They scramble for a better view./Hey! They're looking right at you!"-Shelley B. Sutherland, Niles Public Library District, IL

Pros: cheerful illustrations that make for a fun combination of weird and instructive. Good twist at the end.
Cons: could be a bit scary. But that makes for a more interesting book at least for my kids. I could a child being too scared however.
Unfortunately it's not easily found in bookstores. I'd recommend looking at it at the library to see if your kids like it.
