"I Love Monkey" gets the Delight.com Seal of Approval and is our pick for Daily Delight. --Delight.com

Along comes this lovable character with a wonderful story of encouragement and self-esteem for kids. Monkey's beautiful message is one that every teacher and parent hopes their children will hear. --Terri Atkinson, Bainbridge School District

From the Publisher

Suzanne Kaufman is a remarkable combination---a gifted writer, a brilliant illustrator and a wise, warm-hearted parent herself. No wonder she was able to create such a lovable character. But along with Monkey comes a wonderful message of encouragement and self-esteem - a message that our children simply cannot learn soon enough. Every child is a marvel - a unique and important individual with unlimited possibilities - but not every child believes it. It's up to us - parents, grandparents and teachers - to let our children know they are loved and treasured just as they are. That's what makes "I Love Monkey" so inspiring. Your family will treasure this magical story for years.

My daughter received this book from my amazing aunt for Christmas (who always seems to find the coolest things for gifts!). I had never even seen the book or heard of the author, so I was excited to see if she would like it. Within a few days it became a favorite for bedtime, or really any time for that matter. The drawings are cute and make my 2 year old daughter laugh. The book is amazing quality and has withstood heavy use by a two year old! She is obsessed with monkeys and with every page we have come up with a sound effect to go with the page. She really enjoys "Monkey wanted to be Sushi, but it was too tasty!". After 6 months we still read it at least once a day and it rates up there with other well known titles in our collection (Click Clack Moo, Where the Wild Things Are, Llama, Llama collection... etc). I would recommend this book to anyone!

This has fast become one of my kid's favorites. The message is a good one, but not too cheesy. The high quality of the paper makes the funky artwork even more fabulous.

I bought this book after finding a Yoga lesson plan that utilized this book. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I read the book to my students and, after each page/animal, they'd create a Yoga pose that, to them, represented that animal (I'd say, "Say Cheese", they'd repeat, and I'd say "Eyes closed and breath" and they'd hold the pose and focus on their breathing until I said "Click", representing a photo being taken, which is how we taught the "pose" concept.).

I also liked the message that no one can be YOU better than YOU. I will use this again w/my Kindergarteners during our Yoga unit.

This is a beautifully illustrated book with a beautiful story! It is a perfect story for all of the little monkeys in your life! What better than a story that expresses how wonderful you are just - as - YOU! You may want to pretend to be many things, but overall you are perfect just as you are! A wonderful story for kids of all ages.

I love this book! The monkey/illustrations are adorable (kind of retro) and it has a great message, which is delivered quickly and with smiles!

I plan to get this book for all the little people in my life, it's that cute!!

The book's quality is nice, but the actual content is just so-so. After about 10 pages of the same thing it gets a little repetitive, the entire book is mostly written on the last page.

However, at night before bed my 2 yr old son loves asking for the "monkey" book.

This is one of the cutest books I've ever bought from Amazon- I just love it. I ended up giving it as a gift and then came back and got several more (including one for us). The idea is to just be yourself~it would be cute for a teen or adult novelty gift too. Highly recommended!

I have to heartily endorse this book. It is charming in presentation and message. Our daughter loves to have books read to her, and we have bought her a ton of books so far, but this is hands down one of her favorites. The message is really nice and humanistic too, perfect for a 2 year old child!
