Read full description of the books:
The humor in this one (along with the rhyming text) could work in a preschool group. But it is quite short and I would only consider it as a filler. The shortness had me wanting to use it with the toddler group, since it's harder to find those in the collection. But some of it would be completely lost on them, and some of it just...wouldn't be right. (For example, my very favorite part "The bad giraffe laughs. 'Heh Heh!'" Makes me smile every time!) So with a bit of paper clipping a couple of pages--Voila! A great choice for a toddler book.
4/13/10 & 4/15/10 It worked quite well in both toddler groups. Really grabbed their attention at the monster part. But short easy words, large illustrations, and not too unfamiliar animals seemed to work quite well.
But I do want to read this one aloud to some nieces and nephews (aka brothers and sister). I think they would like my favorite part, too!
3/17/11 With is paper-clipped sections, this story is still a great choice for the toddlers. Both groups loved it. They still didn't get "imposter," but they totally got that the monkey was the monster. Loved it. The limited text on each page also seemed to capture their attention. Perhaps with my larger groups I need to consider even SHORTER toddler books!
10/7/15 That bad giraffe--gets me every time. I used this in literacy moment and had kids, one at a time (and on page span at a time) come up and tell me one of the colors that they saw, then figure out what letter that color starts with, and find the lowercase letter on my board. Lot of "b" color words in that book. :-) They enjoyed it. And everyone got a turn that wanted it--right up to the bad giraffe. So I was able to point out how the giraffe was a troublemaker (theme), and then read the monster part.

Read information about the authorMy name is dave horowitz. I grew up in Smithtown, New York in the 1970s. Instead of paying attention in school I drew pictures of my teachers. Then I went to a famous art college in Rhode Island and studied coloring.
In 1992 I graduated and went to Oregon to play drums and drink coffee. Then I moved to New York City and worked next door to the Twin Towers. Then I learned how to climb rocks and got fired.
Then I climbed rocks.
I moved up to the Hudson Valley and then to California and then to New Hampshire and then back to the Hudson Valley. Then I got a job as a “professional” rock climber. Then I got too old for that.
I still live in the Hudson Valley where I write and illustrate picture books. So far so good…
