Not as well written as the others, which is saying something about the author and her franchise, as Jumping on the Bed, and Sitting in a Tree are "traditional" and didn't require authorship at all. Clearly, Ms. Christelow is a better illustrator, and should stick to that.
Why would Mama rain on their parade by telling them her birthday is tomorrow? How callous of her.
This is a likably repetitive story that preschoolers will love for its simple humor. Its pleasant characters and slapstick humor create an undeniable appeal, and parents will appreciate the fact that the children work together to express their love toward their mother, who deserves a break after all she's put up with from them.
The pictures are cute too, though (spoiler) it concerns me that Mama is in bed with earmuffs on while her five hooligans are causing havoc in the house. I read too much into these things, I admit.
I have a degree in English and happen to be a very big advocate for reading to infants. I now most people will not read Shakespeare, Poe, Keller or Rowling like I do, but I also love reading her children’s books.
I have all the Monkey books for Azalea and she loves them. I find the pictures keep her interest as I read. She is always going for the Monkey books when she wants to be read to.
