Since my older kids are all in full day school, it’s just me and my toddler.
Having one child home seems like no having no one around, to be honest. We’ve been able to run errands efficiently and play anything he wants. He’s very much into building train tracks and racing his Hot Wheels cars.
We’ve only been just us two for about a month, but we definitely are enjoying our time alone. With four kids, this house can get hectic fast. And sitting down together to read a story has been a welcome activity.
Just in time for Halloween, a new picture book is available for you to enjoy with your little ones.
Monsters Are Afraid of Babies is a funny wordplay and rhyme book that offers a meaningful message. The author, Nicholas Tana, has created a new perspective on the unknown, by humanizing those invisible monsters we all thought we saw in our bedroom.
“The story was inspired by a real-life event with my nephew after he refused to go to sleep without his baby sister, convinced ‘monsters are afraid of babies,'” says Tana.
Monsters Are Afraid of Babies, illustrated by Jessica Abbot and Elise Leutwyler, is a vivid picture book that will certainly keep your child engaged. It shows them that what we’re often afraid of can also be afraid of you.
It’s the right amount of friendly-spooky, but can help a child face their fears. And is the perfect read for siblings together at night.
This book just got released this week, check it out here!
