We bought this book after finding another Funny Faces book by Priddy on sale at our local mall. Our 11 month old daughter loves these books - the bright colors, big faces, "googly" eyes, and - of course - the fun noise at the end of each book! My 9 year old brother loves these books as well; and, I can say, as an adult, they are a pleasure to read/flip through with a child. Charlie Monkey is full of fun animals with fun textures on each page and is light on words (but the words it does have are rhyming and fun to read or listen to, similar to Dr. Seuss). Please note: These books are intended for children 3 and up, so infants should be supervised when playing with/looking at these books.
