MONSTER SCRIBBLES is a cute story about Duncan, a little boy who loves to draw monsters in his sketchbook. One day one of his sketches becomes "real" and teaches Duncan that he can bring the monsters to life any time he wants simply by using his imagination. The story's message is a positive and fun one, and the story is accompanied by charming pictures. There's a voice-over narration that can be turned off and on, and the language can be toggled from English to Spanish. However, this is not animated book like Little Bella's: I Close My Eyes nor one in which touching the pictures makes something happen on the screen as in Miss Spider's Tea Party.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
