We thoroughly enjoyed Monsters Have Mummies. This delightful picture book tells us all the ways that monster mummies care for their young ones, be it holding them tight in the night and calming their fears, or tying their shoes and brushing their hair. But that's not all, Monsters have Daddies too, who wrestle and tackle and like to explore or read with silly voices and funny looks. I read this with my toddler and she listened and watched every page as I explained what the monster mummy and ...more

My son (6) and I reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here are some of our thoughts.


The book is about monsters who have mommies and daddies who do things with them. They are all nice monsters and they are not scary. I think all of the pictures are really good. I really like the picture of the monsters playing peek-a-boo because I like blue and the monsters are blue in that picture. I like the part of the book where the monsters are eating using their noses because it’s

My 2.5 year old daughter and I were absolutely thrilled to win a copy of this book! It was very exciting to get it in the mail today and of course, we HAD to read it before bedtime tonight :)

This is an absolutely delightful children's book! It is utterly charming and written in a style and cadence that caught (and kept) my daughters attention. There are beautiful, colorful and unique illustrations on every page that perfectly accompany the text. Monsters Have Mommies is the type of book we need

Angela Muse has once again produced a wonderful book for toddlers and early elementary aged children! The illustrations by Ewa Podles` are brightly colorful adding to the child's reading enjoyment. A story each child will certainly love, is perfect for any time of the year.

This is a great way one can emphasize some of the things mommies and daddies do for their children!

My review of this book rates it with Five Stars.

*I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review of which I have given.

My son and I were excited to win a copy of this book. He couldn't wait to read it when it came in the mail.

This is a fun book. The illustrations are eye catching and match the text well. The cadence of the writing keeps the reader interested. We enjoyed reading this beautiful book!

It is definitely geared towards the younger ages. My 6 year old read this book to me. He said he liked it however it was a bit young for him.

This book is a delightful story told in rhyme about monsters and their families. It helps children understand family relationships and at the same time allays the fears of children about monsters by making them more human. It is a sweet and adorable story that children will love to read again and again.

This is a lovely children's book and i look forward to sharing it with my grandchildren.

What a sweet book. Yes, Monsters do have mommies, daddies, and siblings too, making a lovely family unit just like yours.

Written in rhyme, the author points out all the love given by both parents to their special little Monsteretts: playing peek a boo, cuddling them at night, helping with their grooming needs, calming fears, fixing boo boos when they occur, roughhousing in the backyard with daddy, helping with homework that must get done and helping their little ones discover the amazing world

At first, I was a bit reluctant to say that 'Monsters Have Mommies' by Angela Muse was appropriately age-graded. But, after looking at it, I changed my mind. Despite the title, the drawings are so cute, it's hard to imagine them traumatizing a child. And, the lesson, that families come in all flavors, is a good one for children to learn.

Kids love monsters

This book has lots of different monsters who have similar lives as anyone else. They cry and they fear. Very easy to use this book in a classroom and be a success. Kids love monsters, and cute monsters too.
The format on kindle shows the pages in a weird way though.

Monsters have mommies and daddies and pets.
They have familiies just like us.
Sometimes they disagree but usually they like doing things for each other.

A cute book for parents to read to children.

I was born in California to a military family. This meant that I was the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard always trying to make new friends, but I discovered I had a knack for writing. I began writing poetry in high school and really enjoyed expressing myself by using pen and paper. After becoming a Mom in 2003, I continued my storytelling to my own children. In 2009 I wrote ...more
