Staff Reviews

It can be really hard when your best friend makes a new friend without you. Jealousy makes a lot of other emotions even more complicated than they already are! Find out how Milo experiences and confronts this green and icky feeling!

— Petra


From the creator of Ruby Finds a Worry, a story about what to do when jealousy comes between friends.

Milo loves spending time with his best friend, Jay. But when a new girl named Suzi moves in next door, Milo starts to feel left out. The jealous feeling gets stronger and stronger--until suddenly, a GREEN-EYED MONSTER pops up beside him! Soon, the monster is twisting up all of Milo's thoughts and making him sad. It won't leave him alone!

Can Milo find a way to free himself from the monster and repair his friendship?

Warm and uplifting, Milo's Monster is an ideal starting point for helping children to build strong friendships and say goodbye to jealous feelings.

The Big Bright Feelings picture book series provides kid-friendly entry points into emotional intelligence topics -- from being true to yourself to dealing with worries, managing anger, and making friends. These topics can be difficult to talk about. But these books act as sensitive and reassuring springboards for conversations about mental and emotional health, positive self-image, building self-confidence, and managing feelings.
