A gentle rhyming tale of hungry monsters promotes healthy bedtime routines for young children.
On a cold, quiet, and moonless night, hungry monsters come out of hiding from the woods looking for something tasty to eat. Young Jack, in his little wizard costume, and his sister Joy, in her frilly fairy dress, are fearless and ready to face the monstrous creatures who barge into their bedroom looking for tasty treats.
“We’re hungry monsters on a prowl
For something tasty, something foul.”
The monsters are looking for deliciously grubby feet, sticky hands, and unbrushed teeth which they find scrumptious. But to the delight of the children, Jack and Joy have no such thing—they’re nice and clean and therefore are not the stuff of monsters’ dreams. They are washed, brushed, and smelling fresh and clean—the stuff of monsters’ nightmares!
This playful rhyming story shares with children that it’s never too early to start creating healthy habits, such as washing their hands and brushing their teeth, as part of their bedtime routine…to keep the hungry monsters at bay!
