another monster at the end of this book for iphone and ipad

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.

Another Monster at the end of this Book...Starring Grover and Elmo! for iPhone and iPad


My daughter (23 months old) loves this book! I love how interactive they made it. You have to flick off the paperclips, wipe off the glue, knock down blocks, etc. when grover tries to prevent you from turning the page.

Our 4 year old and 2 year old both love this book on my wife's ipad. It's one of their favorites at bedtime.

"Kind of short" is bad only to an adult who who doesn't understand that the core demo for this book has no attention span. Kind of short is a feature, not a bug. How long are those other books in the picture, like goodnight moon or where the wild things are? Kind of short.

Heya i am for the primary time here. I found this board and I in finding It truly helpful & it helped me out much. I am hoping to give something back and help others such as you aided me.
