Such a charming book! This is a delightful story about a little girl who is kept awake by her "monsters." The text is fun to read out loud (a must for me when looking at children's books) and the illustrations are beautiful and expressive. If you have kids who have sleep issues (and who doesn't?) this is the book to get. Wrapped inside the story is a light teachable moment about sleep training. And if you're lucky enough to have children who konk out as soon as their heads hit the pillow, they'l ...more

We all know the problem, either from our own lives or those of our kiddos...bedtime comes around, and so to the MONSTERS, the BOOGIE MEN, and all the things that go BUMP in the night. Simple solution? Run for someone bigger, someone more grown up, someone to fight out battle for us...but is the monster really conquered? Will it not simply come back once the coast is clear of our proverbial knight in shining armor, and show its face once more...perhaps even bigger, badder, or more unputdownable? ...more

Fun children's book about a child's journey to overcome her "monsters." I enjoyed learning how Kinzie is able to learn from her experiences and figure out her own way to solve her monster problem! The combination of illustrations and onomatopoeia brought the story to life for me. The style of the illustrations is wonderful, and the colors vibrant - a great way to keep my child engaged. I can easily see this book being one of our household favorites for a long time! ...more

Beautiful illustrations as you follow Kinzie solving her own problems. A good example for young girls. A coming of age moment. My 7 year old loved the story and my 2 year old was fascinated by the monsters.

Mom's Review
When Kenzie can't sleep because the horde of adorable little green monsters in her room keep her awake, she goes to sleep in her parents' bed. One day, however, her parents insist on her sleeping in her own room. It is then up to her her to solve her monster problem. She tries everything she can think of to get them to sleep, with little result. An onomatopoeic tantrum organically turns into a dance party, which she is able to steer into a lullaby that finally settles the monsters.

Toddlers and pre schoolers often struggle with sleeping in their own bed and the monsters they are convinced reside in their room. It is quite obvious from this story that Jessica Woo has dealt with little ones who struggle with sleeping in their own room. She has written and illustrated a delightful children’s book that will help youngsters overcome their fear of sleeping in their own room, alone. The child in What to Do About Your Monsters starts out with Kinzie trying to sleep in her room but ...more

Jessica Woo is an author\illustrator, and a mom of two wild things. Her debut children’s book, What To Do About Your Monsters, was inspired by her oldest child. Very quickly after Jessica became a mother, she found that while adults like to sleep, kids are way too busy to ever go to bed.

Other than convincing her little ones to sleep at night, Jessica’s other talents include professional animatio
