Little Monster needs to get ready for bed. That means howling at the moon, scrubbing his scales, getting into his creepy PJs, and enjoying a nice snack before bed: worm juice and baked beetle bread. And, of course, Little Monster’s mother is nearby to tuck Little Monster into bed and turn on his night-light—because even little monsters can be afraid of the dark. Bonnie Leick’s soft, child-friendly illustrations rendered in watercolor bring a new and quiet twist to the evening’s bedtime ritual. Sweet dreams, Little Monster!
GOODNIGHT LITTLE MONSTER by Helen Ketteman is an adorable story about bedtimes and routines. Its soft-colored illustrations by Bonnie Leick are delightful and whimsical. Perfect for bedtime this fun book reinforces nightly rituals.

It's hard to find a child who doesn't want to play peekaboo, and this book will become a favorite as well. Children will delight as they discover, among other things, cows, ghosts, and choo-choo trains. The end of the story features a real mirror, allowing kids to see themselves -- an endless source of fascination. Simple rhyming words help build an understanding of sound and language.
PEEK-A-WHO? is an adorable board book that has your child playing peek-a-boo and guessing what creature is around the corner. Geared for children one to three years of age it’s the perfect non-candy treat. Clayton enjoys this one and laughs as we turn the page. It’s sturdy construction and size is perfect for little hands.
- Ages 1-3

Duck and Goose is soooo cute! We have a new favorite at my library, Creepy Pair of Underwear. 🙂
I will have to check it out. Thanks, Kay.
Such a fun post!. I distinctly remember my son loving Goodnight, Little Monster when he was in pre-kindergarten.
Aww. Memories. Thank you Suzanne
We have one book called the Halloween Bus that I still read to the kids even now and another about a Little Monster. These look so cute! The monster one looks adorable. I hope you were able to read them to the Royals! 🙂
Oh yes, Michelle, we have read them all so much we can quote them, although their new favorite involves a Cookiesaurus. Rex.

Goodnight Little Monster looks so adorable. And I love the artwork. I wish my niece and nephews were still young enough to enjoy it! 🙂
Right. I bought a couple copies for the Marine’s Holiday Toy Collection and such to give over the holidays.

Those look adorable. Goodnight Little Monster looks like it has cute illustrations (all do, but that one is just so cute!).
It really does.

Very cute, having grand royals has really widened your scope of reading. One day, a steamy romance, another a snarky mystery, all glued together with a delightful children’s novel. Happy reading Kimba. I hope the weather has been nice and not too rough on your joints.
Bwahaha…yes by day I read kiddie books and at night everything from steamy to horror. We have the heat on, lows in the forties. I am so not ready.
Awww, they are all so cute.
Right. I am loving this second go at kiddie books.
Kristin @ Addicted to HEA
Peek a Who!!! YAY!!! Or Peek a BOO? “Who” was totally worn out in this house but “Boo” wasn’t out yet 🙁 We had sooo many favorite Halloween books – Jake liked the Hallo-weiner and I liked Goodnight Goon.
Goodnight Goon is a good one 🙂
These are so cute. <3 😀
Aren’t they. Having fun exploring books with the Royals.
Love kids books. We bought Peek-a-Who? and my son just loves reading it. I’ve add the other two you featured to my library request. They both look adorable. I love trying out new kid books with my 5-year-old son. Just love Nonna’s Corner posts. ^_^
I am so glad you enjoy these. I love reading to the Royals and sharing new/old books.
Aw these look cute 🙂 I must admit, I still have some of my books from when I was a kid and flick through them every now and then. Maybe I could read them to my cats *ponders*
I am quite sure kitty would love it!
Yay these all look so cute!
Christine @Buckling Bookshelves
These look cute! We are fans of Little Blue Trucks Halloween and Eek! Halloween (Sandra Boynton) here. I also love Room on the Broom but my little guy has deemed the dragon scary, soooo maybe we’ll hold onto that one for another year 🙂
I will be sure to check those out, Christine.
These look like such fun and adorable reads, Kim. Great choices! Hugs…RO
Thank you, Ro. Happy Wednesday.
Aww, they look such cute and good reads! Can I pretend I’m a kid and go for them? 😛
Heck yes, I grab some coffee and meet you in the kiddie section at B&N.
I really want to start reviewing kid’s books 😀 But the baby is not that keen yet 😉
Soon. The Royals look forward to the books coming in the mail, and we have such fun reading them.
