Children's LiteratureFuzzy board books seems to be popular. Perhaps it is the desire to stroke and touch the soft book cover like a stuffed animal. Mandy is stitched into the fake brown plush that covers the book. She is a cute little monkey and even has a tail that hangs from the book's spine. A full strong pulls indicate that this books should stand up to infant and toddler abuse. Mandy has a problem common to many young kids—she is afraid to try and do something on her own and in this case it is swinging in the tree like the other monkeys. Daddy seems to have the solution; he has Mandy climb on the branch and sit next to him, then gets her to curl her tail around the limb and then they work step-by-step until Mandy is swinging upside down like all her friends. "I can do it Daddy! It's easy when you know how!" The message is pretty clear and most kids will have no trouble getting it. 2003, Tiger Tales, Ages 6 mo. to 3.
