Paperback: 22 pages
Publisher: Pumpkinheads (December 15, 2013)
Love Monster Lulu is scaring up snuggles! But with no one around, who’s left to cuddle? Lulu is sad when she can’t find anyone to share her love with, but her mother and sister give the comfort she needs in this sweet story showcasing the importance of family.
“Bright and sunny characters, expressive faces, and attractive art catches the young child’s eye. Awareness building about themselves and others is really key in these toddler and preschool aged books. Common themes of sharing, self-esteem, reverence for the natural world, feeling alone or loved, and making the world a better place are great topics for young children and beyond. Reading, reviewing, and reflecting with preschoolers about these topics is a great start for these themes to be introduced to them. Using these rhyming books for discussion and pointing out real world examples will further deepen the understanding of these lessons in life. Great books!” – Academics’ Choice

This was a cute book about a little girl named Lulu who loves to hug and kiss her family and pets. When she can’t find any of her family, she gets upset and starts crying. But soon she’s surprised when “something special” shows up and for a minute or two she’s happy again. Sadly, the surprise soon leaves and she’s sad again. When a few of her family members hear her crying, they rush to her and give her lots of love.
This is a cute story that like the others is told in rhyme and has great illustrations. While I enjoyed the book, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other two I’ve read.
