Mamma Kangaroo reads this ultra cute book by Julia Donaldson.
When little monkey can?t find his mother, butterfly offers to help in the search. Little monkey says that his mother is big, so butterfly leads him to . . . an elephant. No, that?s not right! Little monkey says his mom is furry, so butterfly leads him to . . . a bat. That?s not right either. From then on, little monkey and butterfly meet many jungle animals, but they don?t find Mom until little monkey comes up with just the right description. With Julia Donaldson?s effortless rhyme and Axel Scheffler?s vibrant illustrations, this circular tale combines funny miscommunication with a little bit of science for a charming feel-good adventure.

A New York Times bestselling picture book–from the creators of the hilarious HOW TO… series–about a child spending time with his grandpa. Written in a how-to style, the narrator gives important tips for “babysitting” a grandpa, including what to eat for snack (anything dipped in ketchup, ice cream topped with cookies, cookies topped with ice cream) what to do on a walk (find lizards and dandelion puffs, be on the lookout for puddles and sprinklers), and how to play with a grandpa (build a pirate cave, put on a scary play).
Filled with humor, energy, and warmth, this is a great gift for or from a grandparent, and perfect for lap reading when Grandpa comes to visit!
“The narrative is particularly effective in converting childish concern into caretaker reassurance (‘When your mom and dad leave, pat your grandpa’s hand and say, “Don’t worry. They always come back” ’)…While grandpas will obviously enjoy sharing this story with their little ones (and parents will enjoy purchasing it for a Father’s Day gift for said grandpa), there is enough playfulness here to broaden the appeal to a wider audience.”
