|Summary: Two little monsters are busily painting…something! Each new spread shows that the monsters have painted a new shape (stripes, squares, triangles, etc.) in a new color. Only at the end of the text does the reader realize that the monsters have been painting their napping mother! A "break out" illustration on pages 14 and 15 gives children the chance to recount and discuss the story (each small image highlights one of the shapes the monsters painted).
Text Type: A story with a predictable structure and patterned language
Theme/Topic: Art (color and shape, simple patterns)
