Monsters Under The Bed
Have you ever thought about that monster under your bed? For many children, this is something they fear but I’ve decided to have fun with the idea. I’ve asked the question, what if there was a monster under your bed but he was a good monster who was just hungry? What if he just ate your homework?
This is the excuse that is used most often by children when they haven’t finished their homework assignment and I thought I’d have some fun with it. Who hasn’t used an excuse to cover up for their forgetfulness? It’s something we all do so please don’t blame your kids if they have an excuse.
Anyway, here’s the story. Andrew Dodd is eight years old and hates to do his homework but that doesn’t stop him from coming up with excuse after excuse for not doing it. When one night, he hears sounds coming from under his bed he gets scared.
Did The Monster Eat Your Homework?
Waking up the next morning, he finds his school books have been torn to shreds and he is at a loss to explain it. When he tells his parents they get mad at him and he gets in trouble at school. The next night, the same thing happens but he finds a monster with pink paws and blue nails under his bed.
This is the type of book that is great for reading before your kids go to bed. They can have all kinds of fun discussing what will happen next in the story. It’s the kind of book that bonds parents and kids and kids will love the illustrations by my good friend IJACHI OCHOCHE IJACHI who is an incrediblly talented illustrator.
