I love how interesting each new monster is and how they look more silly than scary and I think this is perfect for children who may be dealing with their own monster fears. I Need My Monster makes the idea of a “monster” seem more comforting than scary making it great for young children.

I Need My Monster is a fun tale of a little boy who misses his monster that routinely sleeps under his bed. As he tries to find a replacement that will be just the right fit for him, he is greeted by various other monsters that don’t quite fit the bill. In this e-book children will not only be entertained by this unique story, but will also love the awesome interactive illustrations and animation as they read this fun tale to themselves or with the narrator. There is also an opportunity for added fun with the matching and follow-me games included making this app more than just an e-book for young children to enjoy.
