A fun picture book about a little monster who's worried about the first day of school.
Patrick is worried about his first day of monstergarten. Everyone knows you have to be SCARY in monstergarten. Patrick's friend, Kevin, offers to show Patrick how to be scary – they roar, they sneak up on people, they bare their teeth. But Patrick still isn't ready. His parents tell him to just be himself. But what if he's not scary ENOUGH?
A monstrously fun take on the first day of school jitters, Monstergarten by Daniel J. Mahoney, illustrated by Jef Kaminsky, is a story both parents and kids about to start kindergarten can enjoy!
