From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 1-In Business, a little monkey makes birthday presents for his mother, hides in a trash can, gets so many bandages that he pretends to be a mummy, and loses a tooth. In Trouble, the same character pops some balloons, gets carried away by a kite, pretends to eat worms, and has a series of close calls that culminate in a big "SPLASH!" The chapters have one sentence per page, and feature plenty of repetition and controlled vocabularies. The colorful cartoons help new readers decipher unfamiliar words. The stories have a touch of humor, which adds to their appeal. Early readers will find success in reading these independently.

To begin with, there is a picture of the monkey doing something similiar on every page "monkey sees red balloon" followed by "monkey sees yellow balloon". If there was no text, my daughter could still narrate the story based on the pictures.
The best book I have for improving my daughters reading is"Alpha Phonics: A Primer for Beginning Readers." There are no pictures in teh book, but the phonic sounds are repititive and really help to cement her reading skills. It's teaching the "sight" method of reading, which isn't very useful.
I would also recommend the "Bob" series books for ones with pictures that don't completely give the text away.
The illustrations are adorable! Children will enjoy each and every one of them beacause they show the actions on each page so clearly.
The front and back covers offer many good ideas to help children benefit from their reading experiences.
