Two Little Monkeys

By: Mem Fox

Illustrated by: Jill Barton

Two little monkeys named Cheeky and Chee are hiding in a tree. That’s not where they started though. They were playing by a tree until something came along and sent them scrambling up into the branches.

A simple little story about two mischievous monkeys. The text is basic and full of repetition making it suitable for the very young. The illustrations are simple and clearly expressive. if you are a fan of Mem Fox’s other works for the very young then certainly give this a look.

This book was sent to me by the publisher.By: Matthew Van Fleet

This book takes us down to the farm to visit all the farm animals. It is the newest installment from the very popular Van Fleet. These books are ideally  suited to really young children as they combine so many elements that keep the youngest of readers interested: thick card pages with flaps to lift; tabs to push and pull; different textures and sections that pop-up. The thing I really like about these books is that unlike so many others of this format they are really sturdy. Only one thing is likely to come off. The tabs are thick and easy to use and the flaps are part of the page not simply stuck on to it. These books stand out and I’m sure children will enjoy the photos, simple text and interactivity found in here in one package.
