Read Right Now! HALLOWEEN

Here are some fun stories to help calm some typical childhood fears, like monsters, with laughing! In I Need My Monster (Read by Rita Moreno) Ethan checks under his bed and can’t find Gabe, the monster who lives there. Ethan finds a note Gabe left that says, “Gone fishing. Back in a week.” Ethan doesn’t think he can sleep without Gabe so he tries to find a substitute. These candidates have pointy teeth, sharp claws, and tails, but they are not Gabe! Ethan needs his monster back! In Hey, That’s My Monster (Read by Lily Tomlin) Ethan helps his sister find an under-the-bed monster for herself.

Goodnight Goon is a parody of the childhood classic Goodnight Moon in which a child says goodnight to all of the things in his bedroom. In this Halloween version, a young monster says goodnight to all the things in his tomb…hairy claws and jaws and a pot full of goo and a werewolf hollering, “boo!”
