    I voted three stars for this book but my seven year old felt it was worth four. It’s a fun read especially for a student that is feeling a little nervous about going to school.

    Summer is over, and it's time to go to school. All the monsters are excited except Blue, who has a lot of questions and worries about this new adventure. But as he goes through his first day, he learns that school is about more than ABC and 123. It's also about having fun and meeting new friends. While the plot is nothing that hasn't been addressed in pretty much every other first-day-of-school book, Austin's illustrations are eye-catching and entertaining, and the book does have a fun, optimisti Summer is over, and it's time to go to school.

    Monsters Love School by Mike Austin is a very creatively-illustrated book about a young monster named Blue heading to monster school for the first time. He is nervous, and all of his monster friends try to explain to him how wonderful and fun monster school is! He doesn't believe them, because what is school for anyways? If he already knows his "ABGs and 413s and XYDs" then what else does he need to learn? Throughout his first day, he realizes there is so much more to school!

If he already knows his "ABGs and 413s and XYDs" then what else does he need to learn? Throughout his first day, he realizes there is so much more to school! He does crafts, learns how to make mistakes, learns how to spell, goes through lunch with his friends, and learns that its his ABCs, 123s and XYZs! The illustrations are so colorful and detailed. One of my favorite things is the end pages of the book. The first end page is simple, and in the bottom right corner, there is a crown that says BRAVE across it. This shows that Blue must be brave on his first day of Monster School and embrace change. The second end page is a series of class pictures from the first day of school. Every monster looks so happy, which I thought was a cute touch. Overall, this book wasn't too complex and the story line wasn't riveting, but it was a unique take to a typical first day of school book, and it would be nice to read to students in preschool or kindergarten on their first day of school. Besides that, I would probably keep this in my future classroom library if I'm teaching younger kiddos.

    Monsters Love School By Mike Austin is a super colorful and upbeat story about school! And though it's similar to normal school, it's got one big difference, MONSTERS!! Theres not truly a main character but a blue monster, named blue, is the reoccurring point of view. He is nervous about starting school. Multiple characters are introduced though with many different talents, hobbies, and outlooks on school! you also are given insight to the monsters in the different subjects such as history, art, Monsters Love School By Mike Austin is a super colorful and upbeat story about school!

Multiple characters are introduced though with many different talents, hobbies, and outlooks on school! you also are given insight to the monsters in the different subjects such as history, art, and english! In the end, Blue, based off his first day experience is given a whole new outlook on monster school. I loved this book!! The illustrations were so vibrant, fun, and quirky! The story was very well executed in my opinion. It was a light hearted story with a really positive message. Monsters Love School also has a super cute school supply checklist within the story which is relative for real life. This book had a sequence of rhyming words such as "Diving and swinging, splashing and singing" as well as just several rhyming tendencies without fully being considered a book written in verse. It also does a great job at presenting different point of views in a way that can be easily followed.

    Summary- This book is about monsters and their adventure to school. The book starts off by talking about all of the summer adventures that the monsters experience like swimming and singing. Blue is scared to go to school. He is afraid that no one will like him and he will get very hungry. The monsters soon get all of the school supplies that they need and they cross the street to go to school. The monsters got to make fun things in art class, play at recess, learn how to spell, eat school gruel, Summary- This book is about monsters and their adventure to school.

He is afraid that no one will like him and he will get very hungry. The monsters soon get all of the school supplies that they need and they cross the street to go to school. The monsters got to make fun things in art class, play at recess, learn how to spell, eat school gruel, learn about monster history, attend explorer book club, and hear the singing club. At the end of the day, Blue decided that he loved school and he had so much fun. Review- I enjoyed this book because Blue was scared at first to go to school, but he soon decided that he loved school. I also liked how the author was also the illustrator. Connection to Profession- I can use this book in my Kindergarten class because it shows the fear that many children experience when going to school for the first time. I think this will be helpful for Kindergarten students because it shows how Blue conquers his fears.

    This story is a fantasy book about a bunch of monsters who just ended summer and are now starting school. The book highlights worrisome monsters and excited monsters too. It takes us through the journey of all the different worries from child to child. This story shows us that it is normal to be nervous but it is also normal to be excited too. By telling it through a monsters perspective it makes this story silly and fun yet relatable for any child to read.

I think it would be so fun to read this book to a kindergarten class on the first day of school, it is a fun way to get kids to relate but it is also a fun book to get kids giggling and relating to different characters. I don’t think there are any academic lessons that you could really tie this into. If you were doing it with slightly older kids you could have them write their own fantasy story about any type of animal/creature and their first day of school.

    I think the biggest redeeming feature of this one is the illustrations. The story itself is pretty standard - I'm scared of school, I have my first day, I do lots of cool stuff, School's not so bad. I think the only reason I was so disappointed in this one is that I liked Monsters Love Colors so much. This one just didn't stand out quite so much. I did like all the puns in the teachers' names though! A very solid read for back-to-school season, just nothing that really stands out in my mind.

Monsters are worried about lots of the standard stuff that kids are worried about when starting school, so plenty for your new students to relate to. Certainly a good option for a storytime read.

    I wasn't crazy about this one. I suppose it could be used as a fun way to introduce Pre-school/Kindergarten aged students to the various parts of a school day that they have to look forward to (art class, spelling, library, etc.) but even some of that would likely go over their heads and not yet be relevant. For example, there is a part about the monsters going to history class, which children of that age level certainly wouldn't understand yet. I wasn't crazy about this one.

    Picture Book The illustrations in this book are bright and fun! I think this would be a great book for young children to read (or have read to them) when they are first beginning school.

    It is hard to find a place to start with how much I love this book. Young readers will relate to Blue's feelings, but what adds to this is that his FRIENDS (not the reader's parents!) acknowledge those feelings and offer encouragement. The colorful illustrations also add to that positive vibe. It is hard to find a place to start with how much I love this book.

    A neat, albeit touch long for the attention span of the group I was reading it to, story all about how it is okay to be nervous on your first day of school and that in the end monsters love school! Read during Preschool Play on August 24th, 2018.

    The bit where the monster messes up the abc’s and 123’s was the highlight. Maddie liked seeing the letters to show off her mastery of letter sounds.

    My boys, ages 4 and 6, adore this silly, positive and creative book, and I love the graphics/illustrations!! This book also does great at mentioning normal feelings of anxiety at trying something new and handles it without shaming or stigma. I love it!

Another back to school book that tries so hard to be different and yet is boring same. I can't believe I am saying this about a picture book, but there were times where I was actually confused as to who was talking and which monster was supposed to be the one that was scared. I am still not entirely sure if it was all of them, or just the green one. Or the blue one. The story itself was a bit ho hum as all the monsters do at this school is rather normal stuff. If this is Monster School then I feel like there is so much more that the author could have done with this story. I know that there are so many of these stories out there, but it is for that reason that making a story like Chu's First Day of School or Planet Kindergarten work so much better.

    This was an okay book. The illustrations were bright and colorful. The story wasn't exceptional by any stretch of the imagination, but it was cute. It's a good book for kids who are just starting school or starting at a new school. It shows all the wonderful things they will get to learn and do in school. And teaches them that they will make new friends as well. Overall a decent read, but nothing spectacular. My daughter liked the bright colored monsters though.
