I would reconmend this book to small children in the more emergent stages of reading because it offers many characteristics which are important for this stage (such as rhyme and rhythm). This could still be repetitive but have a learning angle that would make purchasing it a better investment. I had the children come up one at a time and look at the page where she was pretending and tell me what it looked like she was doing. Through the use of ellipses, as the little girl's energy wanes, so does the visual representation of the text. A mischievous little girl and her toy monkey swing irresistibly through the pages of this playful book.

Publisher’s Weekly: This review was less critical, primarily describing the plot and the illustrations in the book. Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears (winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal), Meerkat Mail , Tidy , and Old Hat . To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I really love the use of shading and showing how the little girl drew the adventures described in the book at the end. Throughout this book, the two characters explore different animals by acting them out while always keeping the readers excited for what is next.In Is Your Mama a Llama, there is more rhyme but there is also a lot of guessing what is on the next page, which increases the childrens' awareness of the story. Emily Gravett is the author and illustrator of many children's books, including Matilda's Cat , Again! The pictures give clues as to what animal might be next, and the kids in my storytime liked moving like the animals.

This book is really just a repetition of "Monkey and me" with a slight change in the last few words of the sentence.Every other page has the rhythm of "Monkey and me, monkey and me, we went to see, we went to see some. Because , even when the book is not in sight my children have both repeated the rhythmic and repetitive story to me - it's pretty amazing to hear this from such young children. Soon everyone will be waddling like a penguin, jumping like a kangaroo and waving their arm like an elephant's trunk! The two are partners in crime throughout the book, acting out different animals and keeping readers guessing what is to come next. For example, the little girl will say "Monkey and me, Monkey and me, Monkey and me we want to see, we want to see some.

It continues with the two going through adventures to see a number of different animals such as Penguins, Kangaroos, Bats, Elephants , and Monkeys. Summary from SPL: A little girl and her toy monkey love imitating different animals, everything from jumping like kangaroos to waddling like penguins.In Monkey and Me, there is not a lot of repetitive sounds, but there is a lot of guessing what is to come on the next page. Children will love guessing the animals they pretend to be, before shouting out the answers as the pages are turned to reveal the real creatures. This would work best for a child at the first stages of learning to read, as it not only uses the same few words over and over but also has visual cues to help guess the non-repeated words. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. The simple but repetitive language encourages speech development and it is quiet poetic if you ask me.
