A simple counting book, right? We just need to get a count of the monkeys! If only the cobra, crocodiles, bears, bees, and lumberjacks would get out of the way! How are we supposed to count the monkeys?? Maybe if we can figure out how to make those other guys leave…

This book is rather fantastic, because it is EXTREMELY interactive and hilarious! It’s a wonderful readaloud. So be prepared for your kids to hum a happy song, make a loud roar, or move in a zig-zag—all with the goal in mind to just count those darn monkeys! The illustrations definitely match the feel of the book and are pretty clever and funny. Go check it out. Don’t worry, it’s still pretty educational. There just aren’t any monkeys in it. Hehe.

Find it at your library or on Amazon
