We made a super simple snack to go with our book today. It was inspired by our Hungry Harry Frogs, but this one is even easier. I halved an apple and cut a wedge for the mouth. The eyes are grapes stuck in with toothpicks. Then I used cream cheese to stick a raisin onto each grape. I'm sure you could add lots of fun stuff to this monster like teeth (nuts maybe?), hair, antennas, etc.
We read Silly Monsters ABC. This is full of fun alliterations. The monster's names are silly nonsense words and the kids love it. "B is for the buzzlesnout who buzzes like a bee." There are also words incorporated into the illustrations like a "befuddled bear." A fun book for preschoolers and young readers.
