Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meagan Albright
This beautifully illustrated board book captures the odd sweetness often found in the adorable nicknames that mothers give their babies. From Splish-splash, a little green frog playing in a puddle, to Snuggle-up, a baby panda who loves a tree-top cuddle, mothers and children alike will enjoy reading and cuddling with this wonderful board book. Readers learn new ways to express their love for each other and are sure to love acting out each snuggly rhyme. The soft yet bright colors of the illustrations bring each verse to life. Children will enjoy finding the animals on the next to last page of the book, with the peacock taking center stage while the rest of the animals from the book gather around. The lyrical rhythm of this book make an excellent read aloud for story time or one-on-one reading with your own little snuggle bunny. Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants is the perfect choice for celebrating Mothers' Day or reading about the love between a mother and child any day of the year. This book is highly recommended for purchase for public libraries' board book collection. Reviewer: Meagan Albright

PreS

This charming board book begins, "Mommy calls me Monkeypants...just why I do not know." The spread sports a picture of a little girl in overalls with a monkey and bananas on them. "Mommy calls me Shooting Star...'cause I can fly and glow!" follows, with a mamma and a baby firefly pictured. Through several spreads, each with a different bright background color, animals and insects say their nicknames as they swing, play, chirp, and bounce with their mothers, ending with the girl in bed saying "Mommy calls me Monkeypants...because she loves me so." The pictures capture the lighthearted mood of the couplets exactly and together they create a perfect foray into toddler territory.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA

    Nicknames Bring Smiles

    I like to give a book basket as a baby shower gift and I always include Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants. As a grandmother who has special nicknames for her granddaughters, this book allows me to interject my own special nicknames as I read the book to them. My 2 year old granddaughter brings the book to me when it's our special reading time.
