Two Little Monkeys by Mem Fox

Two little monkeys are playing when something makes them hide in a tree. What are they hiding from?

What I thought: This is a fun book. The language is great. My story time kids always notice rhyming books. If I don't mention that a book rhymes before I start reading, at least one kid will say, "This book rhymes!" Not knowing what the monkeys are hiding from adds suspense to the story. I know my kids will enjoy guessing. I like the illustrations. The monkeys look just right...playful! My favorite illustrations are the leopard and the monkeys eating berries.

Story Time Themes: Monkeys, Jungle Animals, Rhyming Books
