Book Review: My Sister is a Monster by Agnes Green

Sometimes, the scary thing that goes bump in the night is none other than your new baby sister!
“My Sister Is a Monster” is a tale of an older brother coming into terms with a new addition to the family; a family who is oblivious to the little monster living under their very roof.

Between all the kicks, screams, weird smells, and messes, this brother comes to find a new friend who he can go on all kinds of adventures with.
And before he knows it, apprehension and even fear turn into what this story is all about: unconditional love.




My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

My Sister is a Monster is a cute book about a little boy who has a new baby sister. He doesn’t understand why this little monster gets so much attention from everyone. All it does is poop and scream. As his little sister gets older, though, he learns to love her and realizes that she’s not such a monster after all.

This is a cute story with colorful pictures and rhyming text. It would be fun to read to young children but is a must-read for children who are about to have a baby brother or sister. My Sister is a Monster could help them understand that what seems to be an attention grabbing monster will soon be a sibling that they will truly love.
