Boston Monsters: A Search-And-Find Book Reviews
This book was adorable. Each page is a different location in Boston and you have to find little monsters hidden in the picture. I thought the concept of showing parts of Boston and describing the location plus the monster search was great. I would have liked to see more historical tidbits in the book. But this would be a great book for kid if you are traveling to Boston to have. I can't wait to buy a copy for my daughter. I recieved a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review.
In another edition of the “find monsters, not Waldo” books, the hunt leads the reader to places like the ducklings sculpture in the Public Garden, New England Aquarium, Bunker Hill, and the Tea Party port, and ends up being subversively educational. If you’re a monster in Boston, where would you hang out? Fenway, of course, home of the biggest of all monsters.These were harder to find than the previous books, because I couldn’t tell if some of them were monsters or not; not enough detail, or too far away.
3.5 starsThis was a cute little kid’s picture book. The seek and find aspect was a nice addition to an otherwise short illustrated look at Boston historical sites. I think kids and parents alike will have fun learning and searching. One drawback I noticed, however, was that there is no specified number of monsters to look for. Not an altogether terrible thing, but I do think it’s nice to have a goal in mind when hunting- especially for younger kids.Thanks to NetGalley, as well as the author and publisher, for the review copy and opportunity.Amazon
I read this book with my 8 year old daughter to see what her opinion would be. She is a little beyond the look and find stage but she still absolutely loved this book as well as the rest in the series. She thought that it is a great book for little kids because it was a fun book that taught you stuff too. I would totally buy this book for my nephews and nieces. We had fun pointing out the monsters and we also learned some new facts along the way.
Boston Monsters, A Search-and-Find Book by Carine Laforest, illustrated by Lucile Danis Drouot. Chouette Publishing. City Monsters. A cute and colorful monster seek-and-find picture book that is at once engaging and educational. Recommended for pre- or post-trip reading for young people. Thanks to NetGalley and Chouette Publishing for providing this ebook for review.
This is an excellent picture book, I really enjoyed it and it will definitely be a firm favourite.I love the facts that the book holds as well as the fun games to find the monsters - 5 stars
Boston has many historic sites to see including the Make Way for Ducklings statue, and a chance to throw tea into Boston Harbor.
An engaging and colourful book. I can see lots of parents having fun searching for the monsters with their children. The book is informative but makes learning enjoyable for children. Another great book in the series.
This is a cute children's book that teaches about the city of Boston while having the children search for monsters in the illustrations. It features many historic features of Boston that you'd commonly see on a tour if you were to visit. As a native, these are definitely day-to-day staples that you'd see around the city. The narrative about what each picture is about is age-appropriate for children who are just being introduced to history in this audience range.The pictures are pretty darn accurate and adorable, though something bothered me about the narrative. It seemed overly technical or dry in some way, like something you'd read right out of a travel brochure or landmark pamphlet. It's age appropriate, but bland. There isn't anything playful or entertaining about what is written. In agreement with my thoughts, my six and three year old could not hold their attention to the words that went with the pictures, and were far more interested in finding the monsters after hearing the name of each location, wanting to whiz past the actual reading.All in all, this is a pretty decent introduction to travel and historic landmarks in general, but a tad on the dry side for a children's book.
Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
