  1. Annie

    Enjoyable easy to follow story about differences, presented in an easy to understand way. The ending message is perfect showing both compromise and acceptance of differences in others. Perfect story to unpack year by year as your child develops more and more comprehension and language skills. This is great from babies to grade 1/2 (where you can really delve into the plot and above mentioned diversity). Great way for parents to exemplify how looking the same doesn’t mean we are; being part of a community means acceptance of others; compromising our views of the world to experience new perspectives and so on.

    Good book
    My kid loves this one and it isn’t annoying to read a hundred times in a row.

    Don’t be daft! You silly monkey!
    Another fabulous book from the genius imagination of Julia Donaldson. My little grandsons (aged 2 and 3) just love it!Two cute little monkeys (one daytime, one nighttime) have fun checking out each other’s environment. It’s a comical experience for both: day monkey is alarmed by a flying banana (the moon) and hundreds of eyes twinkling in the dark (fireflies), while night monkey is startled by moths wearing make-up (butterflies) and owls that screech (parrots), among other delightful discoveries.The story is told in rhythmic rhyme with lots of delicious onomatopoeia, which makes it an absolute joy to read aloud. And, of course, as always with Donaldson, there’s a repetitive line for little ones to learn, anticipate and shout out over and over. In this case, it’s ‘Don’t be daft!’, as the monkeys laugh at each other’s misunderstandings.What is really special about this book, though, is the beautifully conveyed message that the unknown is not something to be scared of.And let’s not forget the colourful illustrations, which are kept simple with toddlers in mind, but which feature interesting little details to discover and discuss on every page.As for quality, the book is a sturdy hardback with thick board pages and is a convenient size for small hands and for sticking in a handbag or car glove compartment.It simply has to be yet another 5 stars for Donaldson.Thanks for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. Check out my profile page for more reviews of toddler books and puzzles and educational toys and games.
