My Monster Mama
Loves Me So


My Monster Mama Loves Me So

written by Laura Leuck

My Monster Mama Loves Me So
In cute and clever rhyming verse, this title describes all the many ways that monster mamas love their little ones!

The pictures are ADORABLE and we love the funny rhymes ("She gives me great big hairy hugs, bakes me cookies filled with bugs, and when I'm sick she's twice as nice, she gives me lizard juice with ice.")

School Library Journal ended their positive review of this book by saying "Leuck delivers a reassuring message in a funny, mildly scary story. Perfect for storytimes."
