Boogie Monster by Josie Bisset illustrated by Kevin Atteberry (Compendium, 2011) celebrates dancing! The Boogie Monster, who has visited from another planet, has come to encourage the kids to try dancing like a robot, to try dancing like they’re on a bicycle, and otherwise to get their bodies moving. With fun cartoon illustrations and a catching rhyme, Boogie Monster will be a books kids will love to request and participate in with actions. The reader won’t mind reading it either, as it’s a fun book to read aloud. 

Boogie Monster is a nice break from the lethargy-induced television world we live in these days, although with all that moving and dancing, it probably won’t help get kids ready for bed — maybe it will get them ready for just a few more stories first. 

Note: I received a review copy from the publisher for consideration for the 2011 Cybils awards.
