Sample pages from this book
"The pictures support the story and provide opportunities to enhance the learning. The parent handbook really makes this book special. The author offers excellent questions such as "How many monkeys are there?" "Why do you think the monkey is reaching for the leaves?" "Can you point to a long branch?" "A short branch?" Not only does the story whisk you and your child away to the exotic country of Belize, it promotes thoughtful bonding and powerful learning opportunities."Reviewer Academics' Choice CA, USA
