Entrepreneur and critically acclaimed author Natalie Reeves Billing has released her latest children’s book ‘My Daddy is a Monster‘ as part of ‘The Monstrous Me collection’ – a series of books helping children develop a sense of balance, roundedness, and wellbeing.
Earlier this year ‘My Mummy is a Monster’ was launched. The Monstrous Me series is a split perspective book looking at situations from another point of view. Readers can turn the story on its head and look at the very same situations from different angles.
My Daddy is a Monster
This is a very clever way of writing a book – it is based on the ability to “flip” the book. From one side it reads as though Daddy is a monster, BUT from the other it reads as though the kids are!
The same situation is given from bother perspectives…
This provides the kids with a wonderful insight into how exactly the same situation can be read very differently depending on who you are, how you are feeling and what your role is. It is a great way for kids to start understanding empathy from a really early age.

I like that it's an activity away from screens, keeps my son busy! Perfect for Halloween.

I like the fact that you can download the template and don't have to draw your own. I'd prefer it though if it had tabs to keep each fold together rather than having to glue it, because in my experience, glue and a 4 year old do not mix.

This would be a perfect gift for my nephew. He'll be four in November so I'd love to win for him.
