"If I were a monkey who swung on a tree and you were my mommy, who swung after me . . . imagine how happy and fun it would be."
Hand in hand a mother and child monkey spend the entire day together doing the special things that create warm memories: playing hide-and-seek, picking flowers in the breeze, swimming with the fishes and frogs, walking in cool, shady places until finally falling asleep under a glowing Mr. Moon. There's no better way to share the day with Mommy than with Tara Jaye Morrow's cozy rhyme and Katy Bratun's bright illustrations.

PreS-In sweet rhyming couplets, a young boy imagines what it would be like if he and his mother pretended to be monkeys. Though the two romp through a beguiling jungle setting, eat lots of bananas, and have long tails, monkey life differs little from the familiar routine of a human child. This imaginary day includes napping, singing, jumping, playing games, and telling stories. By the end, the little monkey and his mother have turned back into people and say good night in a bedroom with enough jungle toys, books, and decorations to warrant a return to the wild at any moment. The lines of text curve up and down through the bright, double-page cartoon illustrations. This mother-and-son bedtime story is an additional purchase.-Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA
