Story time: The Color Monster

I totally fell in love with the book The Color Monster: A Pop-Up Book of Feelings by Anna Llenas. It has been translated into many languages, so it should be easy to find in your language. We have the french version at home.

The Color Monster wakes up to find his emotions all mixed up! His friend, a little girl, guides him through the book. She helps him understand and identify his different emotions so that he can feel better.

This book is an amazing resource to help your little one understand their own emotions and talk about how they feel. It’s perfect for kids aged 2 to 5.

The illustrations in this book are amazing, and the pop-ups are very well thought out and imaginative. I love the paper cut style and the different textures Anna Llenas uses to make her illustrations.
