Recommended Kids Book: What is the Story of Frankenstein?

Written by Sheila Keenan, this just released children’s book is perfect for introducing curious kids to how Frankenstein came to be. They will learn all about it’s “spooky origin story, the history of the movies, and what lies ahead for this monstrous creature.”
While this chapter book is recommended for ages 8-12, there are drawings on most pages that lower elementary ages can enjoy as well as interesting facts and fun tidbits you can read to them.
I will update with my 11 year olds thoughts on the book once he’s finished reading it. I am sure he will like it as both him and his sister enjoy the Who Was? book series and absolutely LOVE watching the Who Was? Netflix series together! Find out more about the books and the show series here.
