Book Review - Monkey Nut by Simon Rickerty

Monkey Nut is a story about sharing, something that we are talking about a lot in this family at the moment! When two little creatures find a monkey nut they both want it, that is until something larger comes along!

The story is mainly told through the illustrations, and there are very few words. This was brilliant for Harry (just 4). He can't read, and this was the first time that I have observed him sit down with a book and 'read' it to himself using the pictures, which was wonderful to watch. This book also appealed very much to Mia (20 months). She's never really been one for books, although I do try, and this was the first ever book that she brought over to me to read to her.

I have read it to one or the other over and over, and I'd really recommend it for both toddlers and pre-schoolers, I think that it appeals to young children of all ages.



I received the book to review, the link is affiliate.
