Manners Are Not for Monkeys (HB)
When the old zookeeper moved the monkeys to a cage next to the picnic area, she didn't know the trouble it would cause. The little monkeys are fascinated by the children's behavior, and before long they are imitating the children! They play quietly, pick up their banana peels and chew with their mouths closed. Mother Monkey can't stand it! "Try to behave like monkeys!" she shouts, but to no avail. The children who visit the zoo aren't happy either: watching well-behaved monkeys is no fun at all. WhatÕs a zookeeper to do? Children will go ape over the way the tables are turned in this playful picture book. Always topical, the theme of manners and behavior is an essential element of school readiness preparation for preschoolers. A laugh-out-loud tale that is sure to bring out the monkey in everyone!
