Love You to Pieces, Beautiful Monster:  An Emotional Love Story for Parents and Their Sweet Monsters

Who throws bigger tantrums, you or your monster?!

From the moment this beautiful monster wakes, an emotional day of ups and downs begins.

“Every day you make me crazy, I love you to pieces, Beautiful Monster.” 

‘Love You to Pieces, Beautiful Monster’ describes the emotional roller coaster ride that is lovingly referred to as: A Day in the Life of Parenting Young Children. From breakfast to bedtime, you’ll recognize all the emotions a parent and their sweet child go through in just one day.

All this beautiful monster wants is every ounce of their parents love and attention, ALL.DAY.LONG.  What could go wrong with that?

During a time when parents feel like they are in SURVIVAL MODE, this story is a sweet and funny reminder that you are not alone.

Little ones love the repetition and relatable illustrations from their everyday life, while parents gravitate toward the emotional truths of parenthood.

Through the humor, this message of love shines through – our babies make us crazy, yet we can’t help but love them to pieces.

Parents describe this book as the perfect baby shower gift. It also acts as a welcomed surprise, mailed to your spouse or friend that is navigating parenting and could surely use a laugh! But truthfully, the best way to gift it is to yourself and your little monster!

It is time to snuggle up and enjoy the perfect children’s book together.
