Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A little girl and her stuffed animal, a monkey, cavort as she imagines and imitates a series of wild animals. The girl’s actions as she pretends to be each new beast can give rise to a guessing game for children, resolved when a turn of the page shows the actual animal mimicked: “Monkey and me, /  Monkey and me, / Monkey and me, / We went to see, / We went to see some . . . /  ELEPHANTS!” The rhythmic, patterned text reads aloud exceptionally well, though the story’s ending is a bit of a letdown. Still, the spare, expressive pencil drawings are charming, and the restrained use of watercolor washes heightens their effectiveness. This upbeat picture book has great read-aloud potential for responsive listening and extended play in storytimes. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan

This is a great children's book for children ages 3-5. The little girl with her monkey imitate what animal they are going to see next at the zoo, and then the reader can guess what animal it will be as they turn the page. The repetitiveness of the verse, Monkey and Me, Monkey and Me bring cadence to the story. The illustrations are simple, but full of action and emotion-just right for kids. This story is great for getting the child to act out the different animals.

This is a great book for a storytime! I have read it to many groups of 1-5 year olds and have had great success with it. Books that let the child interact or move are always a big hit, and this is a fun one. You have to get the children up on their feet...guessing which animal comes next and then acting out the animal in movement. It's sure to be a hit!

My baby and family love this book, but the one we ordered came full of library book labels all over the front, side and back cover and inside as well. When we purchased it online, it was never mentioned that it was a used library book with labels from the library. If we had known that, we would not have purchased the book as it looks, well, like a library book instead of a part of our private collection.

As a reading teacher I have books that match figures displayed in my room. This book matches a monkey I found at a thrift store. It is in rough shape but the price was right to display. Cute story for younger readers.

I understand the reviews that describe this book as "simple" or "nothing special" but that's the thing about children, you never know what they are going to love. I read this book to my almost 3 year old daughter along with 2 other brand new books and she pushed the others aside and wanted to read this book over and over again. She even carried it around with her afterward. We've had this book for quite a while now and she still inspects the pictures and prefers it to other books that I would think more electrifying. It has a very nice rhythm to it when read aloud and it's actually quite magical.

Checked this book out at the library... I'll be honest, at first I thought it wasn't a good book - after all "Monkey and me we went to see a penguin.." is not proper grammar.............HOWEVER, my 5 year old (really more like a 4 year old he has some delays), can "read" the book back to me (basically memorized it) and enjoys it - and it taught him to read the word "me"............. so I liked it after all :)

Got this book when my son was a baby and at first I didn't like it because it didn't seem all that fun to read (the repetition was annoying). Now that he is a toddler, we love it. He bounces along to the rhythmic "Monkey and me, monkey and me, we went to see, we went to see" and waits in anticipation for me to turn the page to see the animals. It's simple but a lot of fun, nice illustrations, and a frequent request at 19 months age. Now buying another copy as a gift.

This was another book we took out from the library so frequently that it became a favourite and must have item. The idea behind the story, the rhythm of words and simple pictures are just great. We love it.
