Booktalk #1

Would your mom give you cookies filled with bugs to eat? Would your Mom let you swim in a swamp? Would your mom hang a bat over your bed? Monster Mama would! Read this story in rhyme for a funny, loving look at one very spooky family.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
