If you love to see your kids laugh, buy this book :)
Reviewed in Canada on January 2, 2017
I bought this book for our two boys for Christmas having seen the video of the author reading it to a bunch of kids. Our boys are 5 and almost 3 and love it when we read this book together - there's nothing much better than seeing your kids laugh and smile, it brightens even the greyest most stressful days. These precious moments in our busy lives are literally priceless :)
Initially when our 5 y/o unwrapped this book, and it looked so plain and boring, he put it right down again - and then later on, we sat down and read it together. Then the magic really happened!
The book itself is short (there's no story or plot as such), it's very simple but clever - you as the reader, have to read everything in the book, aloud and get into character with funny voices where required for maximum effect - including calling yourself a monkey, all the silly nonsense words, noises and so on. Kids love it when big people do silly stuff, make silly noises and call themselves silly names.
This is a 'silly' book for 10 minutes of priceless fun and laughter with your little one(s) - not a peaceful storytime book with a plot - and it's great at providing those smiles and laughter. If you don't mind making yourself look a bit silly, and enjoy your kids laughter then I'd heartily recommend this book - the simple idea behind it really works :)
I'd say this book would be most entertaining and funny for kids probably 3 up to about 8-9.
The only minor complaint I'd have about this book is that it's quite short - both me and the kids wanted the fun to carry on a bit longer!
