When it comes to young readers, monsters can be a big hit! But not the scary kind—the funny, lovable kind. Fortunately, children's literature is full of books featuring good-natured monsters who couldn't be scary even if they wanted to be—and in some stories, it's hilarious to see them try! Here, we've compiled a list of the best kids books with funny, lovable monsters. While these books are good when you simply want a laugh, they are especially useful for helping kids overcome fears of monsters, imagined or symbolic. Reading them together gives you a wonderful opportunity to discuss a concrete representation of what is sometimes an abstract fear. Turning a worry or fear into something you can laugh about is a valuable lesson for children and adults.
