A Hidden Item Book
STORY-LINE, CONCEPT, DEVELOPMENT TEN TERRIFIC MONSTERS BY CHRIS MASON:
In Ten Terrific Monsters, Chris Mason and Vladimir Cebu created a wonderful seek and find the book for child and adult. As a lover of seeking and find, I am sure any child would love to have this book. Willie the Wolf and nine of his monster friends spent a long day waiting in the unemployment line. Each monster’s return home gives the child a list of objects to find in a picture. The characters are as Willie the Wolf states, “cute as buttons.” The list of items well-defined with excellent illustrations will entertain even younger children.
With well-developed illustrations and good seek list, any child with supervision will have hours of fun. Depending on the age of the child, this book helps with word recognition, counting, motor skills, and organizational skills. The child using fine motor skills can either circle the items as found in the picture or mark off the list. Names are beside the picture of the item giving the child word recognition skills. Counting how many items they found, will help with counting skills, and deciding in what order they will find the items, will help them develop organization skills.
TEN TERRIFIC MONSTERS RECOMMENDATIONS: STARS 4
I would not hesitate to buy this book for a child. This is a great book for children and supervising adult to enjoy together. The story-line will appeal to children and the cute monsters will not frighten younger minds. I recommend opening the book on a laptop, iPad, or larger e-reader, as my old eyes had a hard time seeing the smaller pictures on my small e-reader.
