Dining With … Monsters A Disgusting Way to Count to 10! by Agnese Baruzzi is a cute children’s book in which young readers can dine with monsters on some of their favorite foods. From The Beast with Giant Claws and Scales to Mr. One-Eye Not-So-Nice, these beasts eat spiders, frogs, and more. My daughter has read and re-read this book several times with me and she enjoys flipping open the flaps to count the disgusting creatures being swallowed whole. Even when we are not reading together, she often opens the book and creates her own stories about these monsters.
The bright, bold colors in these drawings and the short little rhymes are engaging and entertaining, and these characters are scary and funny at the same time. It’s a fun way to count to 10. At the end, there is even a recap of all the items eaten, so that young readers can recount these items. Dining With … Monsters A Disgusting Way to Count to 10! by Agnese Baruzzi was a big hit. Perfect for Halloween and for R.I.P. X.
