I picked this book out because my nickname for my son is Monkeypants because he is so wiggly and climbs everywhere, plus I just thought the cover image was cute. He enjoyed me reading this book to him. This is an adorable book about a son who imagines him and his mother are monkeys and do things like eat bananas, take naps in the jungle and watch the sunset together. As another reader has said, would be great to read for Mother's Day. Recommended for ages 6 months+, 4 stars.
This is a great read aloud rhyming book for Mother's Day. Kids are able to identify with the child in the book, wanting to spend time with mom. This is a great book to use for work on narrative skills and phonological awareness. Pair this book with Is Your Mama a Llama? by Stephen Kellogg for even more narrative skill and phonological awareness work.

Cute story about a little boy pretending him and his mom are monkeys and describing what their day would be like. The illustrations included lots of animals which leads to lots of conversations about what is going on in the pictures. The story has had a good flow and rhythm.
