What did you like about the book? “Spunky Little Monkey is a modified variation of the popular children’s clapping game called ‘Down, Down Baby’. Exuberant, bright digital illustrations and very large typeface make this a very fun readaloud as Monkey demonstrates all the body moves of this traditional rhyme.

Anything you didn’t like about it? No.

To whom would you recommend this book? Librarians can use this repeatedly for storytimes as kids will love it.

Who should buy this book? Public libraries and child care centers

Where would you shelve it? Picture Books

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Great for repetition during storytimes and also for beginning readers.
