About this deal

They can also guess which animal the little girl and her monkey are pretending to be, and follow along by acting like the animals themselves. The pictures give clues as to what animal might be next, and the kids in my storytime liked moving like the animals. Every time an animal is introduced the name of it is shown in large, bold, black, capital letters and then there is a picture of said animals. Emily Gravett is twice winner of the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal and the Nestlé Children's Book Prize Bronze Award for WOLVES and LITTLE MOUSE'S BIG BOOK OF FEARS. I believe children could easily relate to this book because animals are universal-no matter where we live, we see some sort of an animal at some time or another.

In Is Your Mama a Llama, there is more rhyme but there is also a lot of guessing what is on the next page, which increases the childrens' awareness of the story. Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett, twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, is a beautifully illustrated story full of animal fun – p erfect for cheeky monkeys everywhere! I love some of Gravett's books ( Wolves, Dogs, Meerkat Mail) but most of her simpler books that appear designed for very young children don't do much for me.Soon everyone will be waddling like a penguin, jumping like a kangaroo and waving their arm like an elephant’s trunk! It continues with the two going through adventures to see a number of different animals such as Penguins, Kangaroos, Bats, Elephants , and Monkeys.

After the readers sees the immitations and reads the lines, she may be able to guess what animal is about to show up next. Each page features the same rhyme leading up to a different animal that the two are pretending to be.

I think that many little kids can relate to having a favorite stuffed animal and imagining themselves going on adventures with it.
