Best Books: Monsterology

October is finally here, and for kids and kids-at-heart that means that Halloween season is here at last. Our family adores Halloween. We decorate, we dress up, we watch movies, and we read incredible Halloween themed and inspired books all month long. This month I wanted to share a book from one of our favorite series. We enjoy reading the mock-non-fiction books by Dr. Ernest Drake. Dragonology, Wizardology, and now Monsterology. Monsterology features knowledge of mythical and legendary creatures and monsters from the history of literature. It is an excellent book for Halloween. Now you and your kids can learn all you ever needed to know about kelpies, krakens, and griffins.

Monsterology gives incredible insight in to all the mythical creatures you could ever imagine. Styled after an encyclopedia of animals it reads like non-fiction but carries that magical and mythical mystery like the other -ology books by Dr. Drake. It truly feeds the imagination for kids and adults alike.

There is incredible detail and fun pictures and diagrams to feed the imagination. At nearly 32 pages it will bring to life the incredible creatures of legend and make the reader feel as if they are now keepers of some magical knowledge only provided to a fair few.

Do you have an early reader at home? One of the best series for learning to read, or improving the skills of a new reader is the Pete the Cat books. not only are they easy-to-read for new readers but they are fun and contain themes that are understandable for early readers. This month we want to highlight the Halloween Pete the Cat. Pete the Cat: Trick or Treat is a fun book for early readers to read alone this holiday or to an older or younger sibling. Younger siblings will also love the fun flaps that surprise the reader with hidden illustrations. Readers can follow Pete as he experiences all the fun of Halloween. It even helps younger kids to understand the spooky elements of Halloween and see it as the fun and surprise that it is meant to be for small children. This fun early reader book is great for that younger child this Halloween. If you are a fan of Pete the Cat it is a great addition to a growing collection!
