Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Elephant likes to parrot everything Monkey says until, "Achoo!" Monkey sneezes. Elephant sneezes-once, twice, three times, and suddenly he feels sick. Monkey takes care of him, with soft hay to rest on, fresh water to drink, and rock juggling to entertain him. No sooner than Elephant recoups, Monkey feels under the weather. Elephant takes care of her by bringing her hay and water to cool her forehead and playing trunk trumpet songs to amuse her. The simple, yet detailed digital illustrations and cool palette complement the mood and message of the text. This follow-up to Monkey and Elephant (Candlewick, 2012) contains endearing dialogue between the two characters. Their expressive faces, gestures, and words convey the interactions of true friends. Monkey and Elephant have distinct voices that would make this a great read-aloud. The story also has the appropriate pacing and length for youngsters transitioning to independent reading with books like Mo Willems's "Elephant and Piggie" series (Hyperion).-Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampaα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Constructed around the explicit lesson that “you are you and I am me,” this sequel to 2012’s Monkey and Elephant will engage newly emergent readers. In three chapters, Monkey first expresses annoyance when Elephant copies her, then provides TLC when Elephant comes down with a cold, and finally receives the same when she in turn develops the sneezles. Bernstein depicts the two friends in a woodsy setting, makes them large on the page so their changing expressions will be easy to track, and adds a touch of playfulness by coloring the trees lavender and Elephant a greenish turquoise. With its simply written text and plotline, this low-key episode will spark feelings of sympathy in readers as Monkey and Elephant “get better” at being themselves. It could easily lead to a general discussion of differences in shape, behavior, and abilities, too. Grades K-3. --John Peters

Monkey and Elephant are best friends and like spending time together. Monkey can juggle rocks so Elephant wanted to juggle rocks. They both liked to make sounds because the liked to hear their voices. But Monkey got defensive and asked Elephant to stop copying him. Elephant was not even aware he was copying Monkey he was just playing. Monkey sneezed and then Elephant sneezed Monkey thought he was copying him again. But then he realized Elephant was really sick. Monkey decided he would take care of Elephant. But how could he take care of Elephant if he did not know what made an him feel better or how would Elephant take care of Monkey when he got sick? They do things their own special way.

This story will make a child aware that it is okay to be different and is even okay to have friends that like to do things different. It is a way of learning new things or just enjoying others talents. It is nice to have a caring friend, too. The illustrations depicts the emotional feelings when the characters are playing and when they are sick by capturing their expressions. Monkey and Elephant are just too cute!

I highly recommend this book.
