This animated tale will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills as they carefully watch and listen to the story and click on the ‘next’ button to turn the pages when prompted. The activity is also a fun, interactive way for your child to find out more about the world around them and to become more aware of the relationships between people and of thinking of others people’s feelings.

How to extend the magic

When you’ve finished the story, why not print out Charlie’s Monster Mask for your child so they can have some fun pretending to be a monster. You’ll need to make a hole either side of the mask, thread some string through and tie it to their head. Ask them what their monster is called. Is he friendly or scary? Where does he live? What monster noises does he make? You could always make a bigger version of the mask and join in too!
