Monster Hands by Karen Kane & Jonaz McMillan

Book cover for Monster Hands by Kane and McMillan

“…Milo read about a monster under the bed. Milo should not have read that book.”

Who hasn’t been a little creeped out by a book, tv show, or a movie when the lights go out? Luckily for Milo, his best friend Mel lives across the street and they are able to speak using sign language across the distance. Mel is able to provide support and ideas for getting rid of that monster in this picture book about driving away one’s fears.

Recommended for the pre-elementary and early elementary school crowd. While the signs do not have a glossary, the art depicts the hands enough that readers (and listeners) can easily copy the motion and the story provides clear context if not a straight definition. A friendship story that inspires readers to interact with the story. Additionally, the method used to face the imaginary monster under the bed might be a useful tool in a parent’s bedtime toolbox.
