Book: The Monster on Top of the Bed (Suzy & Karrit) (Volume 1)
Posted On November 30, 2014
I received the Kindle edition of The Monster on Top of the Bed by Alan H Jordan just a few days ago. I would love to thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read a very nice story. I’ve decided to read it with my 3 year-old daughter last night, and I laughed out loud when she asked me whether there’s a critter under the bed (because I answered her that the critter would only live under the bed if she never tidied up her bedroom!).
This book has a very simple story with very cute drawn pictures (and colorful, too). This makes my daughter loves to point out everything that she saw on the book. “Mummy, what’s this/that?” as she pointed out Karrit who was hiding under Suzy’s bed. I find this book has a very interesting story as my daughter keeps on asking me about Karrit (and why Karrit has a weird look, etc.). It keeps my daughter attached with the storyline. I love the concept of this book, especially when there’s a few quizzes after the story that will keep children involved in this story.
Frankly speaking, I always have problems telling bedtime stories to my daughter as she’s rather interested in flipping the pages whenever she feels the story is rather dull. Kudos to the author because this book managed to catch my daughter’s attention. As an Asian mum, I feel it’s pretty challenging to get a good children’s book as English is our second language (I have to translate some of the words into my own mother tongue.) Sometimes I do feel bored telling the same old fairytales (Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, etc.) and I would rather love to check out for some other story books that underline good moral values.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
CYBER MONDAY DEAL
Just a short note to let you know how Amazon Best Selling Author, Alan H. Jordan, is using the Kindle along with the new Creative Edition of the book The Monster on Top of the Bed, which contains the two books in one: a great picture book for children and also a place for children to write their own story right on the artwork. The result is a book that children love, that banishes bedtime fears and that inspires them to read and to write. Until 11:59 Pacific Time today it is on three sales on Amazon, and is much less expensive than in Barnes and Noble and in bookstores. until 11:59 Pacific Time today it is on three sales on Amazon, and is much less expensive than in Barnes and Noble and in bookstores.
ONCE UPON A TIME there was a little girl named Suzy, who used to jump up and down on her bed having just a great time. This scared a young critter named Karrit who lived under Suzy’s bed. But, Karrit heard Suzy do all sorts of nice things for people, and he wanted her to be his friend. Still, Suzy ate strange things like cakes made out of pans (pancakes) and the toes of toemays (tomatoes) and—he couldn’t believe it—he heard her talk about eating something truly horrendous.
One day Karrit heard Suzy tell her mother that she was lonely and needed a friend. Because of that Karrit decided to visit Suzy, and Suzy got to meet him. At first Suzy was scared of Karrit. After all, he had red, scaly legs, and a blue nose, but he seemed a little scared too. Suzy treated Karrit the way that she would want to be treated if she had gone to his house.
Suzy figured out what was confusing Karrit, and she was sorry to have scared him. She showed him a hotdog (she didn’t eat dogs that were hot) a tomato (she didn’t eat the toes of matoes) and a carrot (she definitely didn’t eat Karrits).
Suzy made Karrit feel that she liked him, and that she wanted him to be happy. Because of that, the two of them played. They kept getting to know each other better until one day they both realized that they didn’t have to be afraid of each other, and that it was a mistake for each of them to think the other was a “monster.” Suzy and Karrit became best friends, and neither was afraid of monsters again.
