This Monster Cannot Wait! by Bethany Barton

thismonstercannotwait

A written review by Cathie Sue

In this fun follow-up to This Monster Needs a Haircut, Bethany Barton encourages her inner preschooler to run a muck. The agony of waiting 5 whole days to go camping drives our little monster to desperate measures. He berates readers to “Just read the book already!” and changes clocks and even builds a time machine just to make the time move faster. Graphically interesting text makes this a good choice for looking at and learning letters while the quirky character renderings give everyone something to smile about. Read this one to youngsters working on self-control and perhaps they can be persuaded to wait. Eventually.
