Book of the Week: Monkey and Me

We love love love Monkey and Me! It's a rollicking, rhythmic, repetitive read that describes a little girl and her monkey visiting a variety of wild animals.

We've used it to introduce a number of new animal noises/actions; Little E can now flap like a bat and bounce like a kangaroo. We like that it includes a few animals less common to children's books; the afore mentioned bats and kangaroos, as well as penguins (and the more common elephants and monkeys).

The illustrations are lovely, simple pen and ink drawings. If you look closely, each page gives you a clue as to the identity of the next animal they visit.

I can see Monkey and Me being a favourite at our house for years to come.

Am buying H 'Wolves' for Christmas. Looks right up his alley! Might also buy #2 Orange Pear Apple Bear. Illustrations are beautiful.
