Another Monster at the end of this Book...Starring Grover and Elmo! is a fantastic interactive children's book for the iPhone and iPad. The story is about a book that Grover and Elmo encounter that is supposed to reveal another monster at its conclusion. Grover is opposed to reading it because books about monsters make him uncomfortable. Elmo, on the other hand, loves monsters and can't wait to get to the end of the book.
As you read the story with Grover and Elmo, Grover does everything in his power to prevent the next page from turning by pinning them down with paperclips, gluing the pages together, building castles, and putting up steal walls. It's the reader's job to help Elmo turn the page by removing Grover's obstacles. As Grover and Elmo engage in dialogue, the words they say appear on the page as they say it which is great for children who are learning to read.
In addition to the story, there is also a Parents Notes section to help you and you child get even more from the story. This section recommends follow-up questions to ask your child, how to add play value to the interactions (like make it a race to see how fast they can remove the paperclips), and discussion about conflict resolution and how to expression emotions. This section really is filled with a lot of good stuff for parents.
