KIRKUS REVIEW

Monkey travels the world and learns to speak in different languages.

Monkey is going on a trip around the globe. In several different countries Monkey learns how to say the phrase "My name is Monkey!" In France he says, "Je m'appelle Monkey!" In China he says, "Wo de míngzi shì Monkey!" Monkey also visits Russia, India, Egypt, Argentina, and Japan before returning home. Each translation comes with handy, phonetically spelled pronunciations to help parents and little ones get their tongues around unfamiliar languages. A concurrently published board book, How Iguana Says “I Love You!”, takes young Iguana and his family on the same trip around the world but teaches translations of “I love you.” Both books are charmingly illustrated, with thick lines and rounded edges colored with dark oranges, purples, greens, and blues. Each locale is given a distinct landscape, but the similar illustration style subtly reminds readers that we are all of one world.

A delightful read for little tots who are ready to expand their horizons. (Board book. 2-4)
