Cornell, Kevin Go to Sleep, Monster! Balzer and Bray, 2016. PICTURE BOOK $17.99 Content: G.
Anna tries to put her brother George to bed, but he won’t turn out the light because he is scared of the monster under his bed. When Anna asks the monster to go to sleep, he is scared of the monster that is under him. As George and Anna try to get to the bottom of all of the monsters, under monsters (eventually getting to the core of the earth), they find the “underest under something” monster. He doesn’t want to go to sleep because he is lonely, so all of the monsters, George and Anna all sleep together.
My boys enjoyed this book, they thought the different monster illustrations were cute and each had their favorite monster. The illustrations are adorable and when they get to the last monster, his being lonely and wanting friends is cute. In the end, all the monsters are asleep in George and Anna’s house making for a good bedtime read.
