I love love love love love Halloween! It is the most fun day for me ever since I was a little kid and I try to make it just as awesome for my monsters. We recently received copies of Paul Czajak’s book Monster Needs a Costume and I am obsessed.
This is truly one of the most beautiful books for children I have seen in a long time. The artwork is bananas! The pages alternate from gorgeous color to stark blacks and whites to really enhance the story. Monster Needs a Costume is about one monsters quest to find the perfect Halloween costume. He just can’t seem to make up his mind. The great message to this book is that you can dress like whatever you want for Halloween no matter what kind of monster you are (I’m assuming there are boy and girl monsters?) The message of equality is subtle but could be a great conversation starter for your son who wants to be a ballerina or daughter who wants to be Superman.
