    This book would be brilliant for teaching children about the differences found between people or animals and how these differences can affect people It is a silly book, but that is no bad thing and the art work is really good

    The Big Scary Monster is always scaring the small animals, but because they learn to hide he goes in search of someone else to scare and instead gets scared himself so runs back and from then on learns to be friends with the small animals and no longer wants to be scary Lovely book, would definitely share with KS1 children about the importance of being nice to everyone no matter what they look like or how big or small they are I loved the classic story feel that the book had and now you can conn [...]

    The big scary monster scares the little creatures around and no one plays with him He goes off to a nearby land where things seem small at first, then gradually gets bigger as he gets close He becomes the small creature of that land and is scared by a creature from there I would use this book to teach perception Things are smaller as they are farther away, and bigger when they are closer I think this book can be used for Kindergarten to 1st grade.I think this book is also about the golden rule t [...]

    Big Scary Monster is one misunderstood beastie He loves to jump out and surprise his friends, but he s not mean, really Yet when his friends start hiding from him, he decides to look for new creatures to frighten, only to wind up finding out he s a bit of a scaredy cat himself hcplConcept of self perception is addressed.

    This is the first book my husband read to the baby still in my belly in hopes of establishing a relationship with Baby We read that the the baby hears Daddy s voice, the better a bond the baby will have with Daddy when Baby is born What I liked so much about this book is the pages where the monster says, Boo because it was so cute to watch my husband try to scare Baby.

    I tend to like books about monsters because all children go through a monster phase and picture books are a great way of handling this fear I like the concept of this book self perception and how everything is a matter of perspective Also it is fun how the game turns and the ending pages are adorable with all the animals hiding along the rock.

    This book would be so cool if it wasn t so confusing We agreed as a family that the story would have been clear if there would have been 2 separate groups of animals that did not look alike I think this would be a really fun read aloud Great opportunities for yelling BOO together Interesting conversation, too about how things in the distance look smaller than they actually are.

    3.5 StarsSize is truly relativeere will always be things smaller than you and things that are bigger than you.The book is about bullying and realizing the things you are bullying could be friends you can play the boo game with

    I liked this fun twist on the monster story and I think kids will too The illustrations are great and the story helps put things into perspective you re only as big as you feel and there may be someone bigger than you.

    I think he s a cute monsterbut to the creatures smaller than him, he is the big scary monster , who experiences an interesting transformation when he goes down the mountain to a place where he is scared than scary Charming for preschoolers who can grasp the idea of perspective.

    Between three and four stars It s charming but probably ultimately forgettable I like that it introduces the idea of perspective but just doesn t stand up against gems such as I m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean.

    I like the monster stories that play on the fact that monsters have feelings, too This was a cute one in that respect Best for younger elementary kids or preschoolers.

    Margo Dill
    This is a cute picture book love the illustrations and the animals and the idea The ending seemed off to me but I can t put my finger on it.

    37 months O always enjoys a monster book Cute illustrations and the story was ok Interesting idea, change in perspective from big to little Putting the shoe on the other foot so to say.

    Kids loved it and wanted to read it multiple times for me good for a kids book other than that, what s the point.

    Really really cute pictures.

    I did not really like it.

    PB 41 Okay storyline, but has some great pictures

    great book, fun read a loud

    this is such a neat story I love it.

    It s all about perspective Somewhat overly simple, but still a cute story Good for overcoming a fear of monsters after all, they re not scary if you don t want them to be.

    This is a fun story, a good read aloud It is short but is a good introduction to the concept of artistic perspective things get bigger as you get closer.
