How The Monkey Saw The World is about a mean old buzzard who tricks the animals into giving him their food by tricking them into an air ride then threatening to drop them if they don't give him the rest of the food. In the end, Mr. monkey tricks Mr. Buzzard into giving all the animals back their food. It teaches the lesson that trickery isn't a nice way of getting what you want. I think that the book was very cute and I love the message that it conveys, but the illustrations were a little plain. ( )

Second grade reading level but the moral of the story could be taught as young as pre-school. This book is about a mean buzzard bird who goes around the jungle picking on and playing jokes on all the animals. The jungle monkey decides to put a stop to all the mean jokes so he comes up with a plan to stop the buzzard bird. A cute story that is easily relatable to children and playing well with others. A cute book with unique illustrations. ( )
