Overview

Ten little monkeys swinging on a vine. One found a waterhole, then there were nine. So begins the tale of monkeys and mishaps that will have kids rolling with laughter as they learn an important math concept. As each monkey makes his amusing exit, readers can take a monkey counter off the 3-D pop-up tree that is included in the book. By the time children reach the part where only one monkey is left, they will have counted down from ten to one.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Youngsters can place 10 monkeys on the 3-D pop-up tree that springs up from the paper-over-board book Ten Little Monkeys: A Counting Storybook by Keith Faulkner, illus. by Jonathan Lambert. Starting with "Ten little monkeys swinging on a vine" they count down to "One little monkey missing all his friends," removing monkeys as they go. Bright, bold brushtrokes convey the primates' comical mishaps, such as one monkey landing on a porcupine, along the way. ( Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
This fun and vibrant pop-up book, with paper monkeys for counting, is a sure hit in teaching young children to count from 1 to 10. This wonderful interactive feature allows children to hang ten little monkey characters from the branches of a three-dimensional jungle tree and remove them one by one as the story counts down through their disappearance. Everything from the book's singsong text to the bold and vibrant colors of the illustrations and the people-like faces on the animals expresses a youthful, carefree and silly attitude. Not only does Ten Little Monkeys prove to be educational, but from the minute I opened the book, I felt as if I had begun a board game. I could almost hear the imaginary giggles of young children. 2001, Scholastic,
