Handmade and one of a kind, adorable plush monsters are a fun and unique variation of the classic sock monkey. Sold in over 25 specialty, gift boutiques in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Hawaii. Accompanying these lovable monsters is an educational book designed to teach much more than loving inanimate objects. With whimsical illustrations and playful words, monsters introduce the alphabet to its youngest reader, while further study of the text gives older children a chance to explore parts of speech such as; adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and synonyms. With a focus on one theme, LOVE!
