Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This lively concept book offers a rollicking introduction to beginning multiplication. Readers learn to count by twos, threes, and fours as they follow a group of exuberant monkeys parading down the street. The action begins with a scene in a dressing room filled with monkeys getting dressed, putting on makeup, and rehearsing their acts, and ends with the Monkey Queen and King throwing bananas to the crowd. Each bright, colorful illustration suggests plenty of movement and excitement. The rhythmic text adds to the parade theme, while the animals' shenanigans make counting fun. A note to adults gives suggested activities to reinforce the ideas presented in the book. Also included is a list of other titles that focus on the same concepts.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
