Monster Kisses, the second children’s book by Kyle Morey, is a delightful, short journey through the world of monsters kissing their babies. Monsters, surprisingly, kiss their kiddos the same way other mommies and daddies do…on the head, on the ear, on the face, on the tummy. This book is short with one simple sentence per monster. It’s a perfect “I’m in a hurry” book to read that will lead you to spend a little more time having a kiss-fest with your own little one.
Kyle L. B. Morey is the author of two other books: The Curious Sign on Aisle Nine (found on Amazon.com), and Ask God: My 30-Day Experiment with Prayer and Its Potential to Answer Yours (found on Amazon.com).
Kyle Morey is a guy full of life and imagination, and he’s at it again in this clever children’s book! The author of Ask God, Kyle is proving he is diverse and talented as an author.
In That Curious Sign on Aisle Nine a young boy goes to a pet shop and finds that he already has all the pets that are available…but there’s a sign on aisle nine that piques his curiosity. The pet shop’s secret is a purple gorilla, but the boy is warned not to poke his new pet. You know what kids do when they’re told not to do something, right? Well, the boy pokes his new, large, purple friend. What ensues is an adventure!
Your kids will be sitting on the edge of their seats as they find out what happens as this ferocious beast does what ferocious beasts do…all in a melodic rhyme that hearkens to those of Dr. Seuss.
I loved this book and I’m sure your children will, too! This is one of those books you’ll read over and over again.
*I was provided with a complementary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Prince Noah has learning differences (he’s based on the author’s son who has Down Syndrome). This story takes Prince Noah and his friends to school. They go to school on boats, and the boats are highly segregated. When the boats are all blown off-course by a storm, they’re captured by pirates and the children are all imprisoned — together. There, they use their various skills and abilities to work together to free themselves and thereafter they’re schooled all together.
As the mother of three kids with special needs, I love the premise of this book (that children shouldn’t be pigeonholed because of their differences), but the implementation in this case just feels ‘off’. Maybe it is the translation from the author’s native German, but the story just feels strange. The wording is awkward and choppy.
I’m really disappointed since I loved the original Prince Noah book. This one just didn’t do it for me.
