Lester, J.D. (2009). Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants. New York: Random House.


Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants is a boardbook that shares the various nicknames, inspired by many animals that a mother has given to her daughter.

While this book is certainly cute and would lend itself to naming various types of animals, the lack of a father figure is noticeable.

While the child and mother are shown at the beginning and end of the story, children from various background should have an equal chance...more
Cute enough, though the peacock who is called Hollywood always annoys me for some reason.
This was so cute. I picked it up because "monkeypants" seemed like such a perfect nickname for my high-energy and silly son... I assumed it would be about a child he'd have something in common with. It's actually not. After the first page it's about various mommy-baby animal pairs where the mother has a particular nickname for her little one. But I'm a sucker for most books with baby animals in them and I thought it was absolutely adorable even though it wasn't what I was expecting.
This is a cute little bedtime story. I have always been attracted by the title and now I read it today. Every mom has a pet name for their kids because they "love them so" mommy however does not call me Mon
key pants LOL
I thought the text and illustrations were very cute, but my 14-month-old son didn't find anything neat about this one. Maybe if he was old enough to understand the words, he would.
Natalie rejected this book. I thought it would be about cute names for human babies, but it had mostly animals. It was still a cute concept, and the artwork was nice.
This is a really sweet board book with lots of different animals who are called different things by their moms and dads. It's a neat way to start learning about animals.
This is a cute read for parent and child and all the nicknames that can mean love. Cute illustrations. Ages 2+

Cute book about different Mommies and their babies. I like the rhinocerous and the monkey page the best.
just read it a few days ago and i can't even remember it. must have been memorable.
I think this book is pretty cute, but so far my son isn't impressed.
Baby animal/mother pairings with all sorts of nicknames.
Sometimes she calls me Fussypants, too.
I absolutely loved this book!
Baby animals and their mommas.
