The Best New Children’s Book

30 Aug

We just discovered the best children’s book I’d never heard of — Tickle Monster by Josie Bissett. It was published in 2008 and has to be well on its way to being a classic. Many thanks to my parents’ dear friends for sending this our way.

How could you not love a book about an alien monster that begins like this:

Tickling my lovies is what I do best. Are you sure you’re ready for what’s coming next? I’m all in a tizzy, quite frizzy and dizzy. My fingers are squiggly, your pigglies are wiggly…”

And, you can order the book with its own Tickle Monster mitts for extra tickling ammo.

The girls just started laughing last week, and I have a sneaking suspicion that this is the kind of book they’ll be begging their dad to read them in a few months.

Need a gift for a baby shower or a new family? Highly recommend this one!

    Don’t you just *love* baby laughs? And aren’t your babies’ laughs the best of all?

    Cara, your little angels are getting bigger & cuter every day. I still remember Lisa’s first giggle. The memory still warms my heart. Enjoy! Thanks for the tip on the Tickle Monster book. One more Christmas present I can check off. Yes!
