My five-year-old son checked this book out from the library this week. He was a bit disappointed.

He was not necessarily disappointed by the monkey hook-ups, although I thought that was a bit odd in a children's picture book. He was more disappointed by the choppy rhyme and the lack of a story.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars, but I round up.
Seven Spunky Monkeys one by one get struck by the sting of cupid’s arrow. Each of the remaining monkeys swear that they will not turn into love sick fools, alas it seems inevitable that we will all find that perfect someone and settle down. Monkeys are no exception.
A fun read aloud to share that is guaranteed a few giggles. Lynn Munsinger did a fabulous job as always with the illustrations greatly adding to Jackie French Kollers entertaining silly story.

Now here is a children's book you can sink your teeth into.
I want to read this every day, in bed, after a bath... each day of the week.
I want to read Spunky Monkeys at home alone on a Saturday night.
The pictures are lovely and keep even the most wander some 3yr old involved and the rhyme and context of monkeys finding love is sooooooo cute. Yay
They start out as seven spunky monkeys and each day, the numbers get lower. What is going on with these monekys? Where are they going? As we find out in the end, it seems they've all caught the love bug! The rhyming is fun for the kids to listen to.

I read this book to kindergarteners during the week when they are learning the letter S in class. It's entertaining, with interesting illustrations that the children will enjoy looking at. It's told in rhyme, so the cadance makes for an engaging read-aloud.
the kids loved the rhyming flow of the book. i thought all the monkeys getting married and having babies was a little strange. i mean, i guess that's what we do, but i was under the impression that these were school age monkeys! :D
Cute pictures. A bit disturbing that the monkeys keep hooking up. Not sure I would read aloud to group due to parental grumbles. Viv thought it was funny. Counting aspect appealed to her.

PB4. Remind me of the 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed but with a lot more adventure. Instead of jumping on the bed, these monkeys were out and about having fun.
This was an okay book, but not really great. Everyone should read it, but it's definitely a library rental.
Kellen and I loved the pictures in this book! He laughed and laughed. :)
Too much romance for most of my younger listeners.
