Rating: 3.2 – a fun kids book

Opinion: I’ve read this book to the kids at work. They enjoy saying the lines along with me, especially the parts with the monkeys. The kids also like stomping their feet and shaking their fingers along with the book as well. They ask me for the monkey book every once in a while. They also like ‘reading’ to each other in a big book version. Some parts of the book are a bit repetitive so I skim a few parts. During those parts, I encourage the kids to say what I’m pointing to in the book. The books states the cap colors a lot, so I’ll ask them to say the colors. I’ll also ask them where the caps are, as the book does. This is a simple little story that the kids really get into. It’s a fun little addition to the classroom library.
