Cheeky Monkey Manners: Listening by Lisa Kerr
Published by Five Mile Press
Cheeky Monkey Manners is a series of board books that contain a simple story teaching how Cheeky Monkey should behave. Cheeky Monkey is going to the shops for his mama and she asks him to listen carefully whilst she tells him what he needs to buy. He listens quickly and goes on his way telling the other animals what he needs to buy on the way. The list seems to change and the reader learns that perhaps monkey didn’t quite listen properly after all. He does come home with his treats though.
The list does morph into something quite funny and Mama is not very happy when he comes home. It appears another trip to the shops is needed. This is a quick cute story that can spark a conversation with your child afterwards about the importance of listening. The illustrations are bright and colourful and we get to meet Cheeky Monkeys many friends along the way.
It is a durable board book that can also be read to babies with a message for when they are older.
