"My Monster Burrufu" Review And Giveaway!

"My Monster Burrufu" Review And Giveaway

From the mind of Alberto Corral, an animator at Dreamworks Animation, comes the delightful children's book "My Monster Burrufu".  This story is not only entertaining for young readers, it also comes with an important and positive message.  That message is not judge people before you get to know them and to focus on what's on the inside.  

"My Monster Burrufu" is a chapter book designed for boys and girls from the recommended ages of 9-12.  The book is a wonderful chapter book for this age group, and is 102 pages long.  Reading is a very important skill to practice and develop for any young child, and "My Monster Burrufu" aims to make it an enjoyable experience for children everywhere!

I had the exciting opportunity to review "My Monster Burrufu" with my own children and I couldn't wait to share with all of you!  I have a 9 year old that loves to read, so naturally she was happy to help me on this review.  

What I love about "My Monster Burrufu" is the reader friendly format for children.  Younger readers usually still like a lot of pictures to look at while they read, and this book does a wonderful job of incorporating enough pictures in with the chapter book.  I also like that its not a massive chapter book.  With 102 pages, and all the pictures included, it really makes for a nice easy read for this age group!

My daughter was first intrigued with the beautiful cover work art, which was done by Alessandra Sorrentino.  She also was happy that it had a nice beginning page designed for kids to write their name!  Since she has been reading this book, she updates me everyday on the latest adventures of Olivia, who is the seven year old girl in the story.  My other daughter who is 11 can hardly wait for her turn to get her hands on it!  As a mom, any book that can get my kids excited about reading, earns two thumbs up in my book!  I would recommend this book for any young reader!
