The Perfect Michigan Kids Book for Your Little Michigander! 


The Perfect Michigan Kids Book | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

“Waverly May and the Monsters of Lake Michigan” is a super cute children's book written by Michigan authors about our fabulous state of Michigan! It is extremely imaginative with vivid illustrations and easy to read sentences. 

Are you ready for an adventure?! 

Young Waverly May and her parents embark on an adventure at Hoffmaster State Park when suddenly, Waverly’s imagination takes hold! Is that a sand monster grabbing her foot or a sea monster waiting to swallow her whole?

With the help of her fearless parents, Waverly manages to vanquish all her perceived monsters and has a wonderful day at the beach!  This lovely books helps kids overcome their fears and have the courage to try new and exciting things.



“Waverly May and the Monsters of Lake Michigan” is full of great illustrations by Blake and Becky Kooi. I love that this Michigan themed book is written by Michigan authors as we love to support local as often as possible.
