This is one of my favorite story-time books for younger readers. They love bouncing and counting along with the silly monkeys. Although there are many versions of this story, I always come back to this one. It’s also a great concept book for young readers who are learning to count. ( )

I love reading this book it’s a humorous poetry and song book. There is of course the hidden meaning of listening to your mother and the doctor. The book also can help children count. It’s rhyming and repetition helps the readers predict what’s going to happen next. ( )

I have listened to this in song form with my sister and her two babies. They really love listening to it I think because they know what is going to happen next.
