Smiley Boy and I recently read the book Little Chimp's Big Day by Lisa Schroeder, illustrated by Lisa McCue.
In the jungle, in a tree
Sits a little chimpanzee.
Mother said she'd be right back
But now the branch snaps with a crack…
And in a SNAP, Little Chimp is off on a big adventure-taking a watery ride atop a hippo, swinging on vines, and munching bunches of bananas. But as he goes bumping, jumping, and racing across the jungle, he never stops wondering: “Where could Mother be?” Little Chimp may not know, but sharp-eyed kids will see that mommy has an eye on him all the time! An enchanting text filled with rhythm and rhyme, and sweetly charming illustrations.
Not only did Smiley Boy enjoy listening to the rhymes, but he loved imitating Little Chimp! When Little Chimp landed with a thud in mud, Smiley Boy crouched down to the ground in the same position as Little Chimp.
He also had so much fun trying to glide and ride, roar and soar, and flip and flop!
Smiley Boy also loved looking at the different animals, but I know Little Chimp was his favorite, because he'd always have a big smile on his face whenever he'd see Little Chimp!
Little Chimp's Big Day is a really cute book that Smiley Boy loves to read and act out!Shop: You can purchase Little Chimp's Big Day at various retailers online and nationwide (ARV $14.95).
