In celebration of children’s book week, we are having a monkey book week and it’s been going mental with all our preparations!
We’ve been book buying, chocolate eating and of course reading to bring our 5 favourite books in no particular order. We just love them all and have voted them against the following monkey criteria –
1. Did we poop ourselves laughing after reading the book?
2. Did we want to play the parts in the book?
3. Could adding monkey to the title have improved the story at all?
4. Did we like the nice pictures?
5 Did we learn anything? (Mammy made us add this last one – She said this was important for our monkey minds so we’ve added it as i am a wonderful monkey boy who does everything my wonderful mammy tells me – quick millie have a look – has she gone? Phew – right back to the monkey criteria)
6 Are we going to add it to the monkey bookcase?
The monkey shelf – first book to review is the one we wrote a little about on our blog post the other day – what happens to our rubbish when it goes in the bin? Well this book was fabidab as it ticked a lot of the monkey boxes above –
What we learnt about rubbish –
The bin is like the magic tunnel in alice and wonderland – once rubbish falls down it, it goes on a very very long and exciting journey…..da dda daaaaaaaaaaa. Now monkey is a well trained rubbish hunting professional so he is allowed to do this next bit. You reading this shouldnt do it as you are not as professionally trained as monkey and you could get really smelly and get ill cos rubbish can be dirty and you shouldnt touch it. The men in gloves and funny suits come to take it away on their noisy trucks that sometimes wake Millie up. she gets a bit cross at that as she needs her sleep she says. I am the professional reading monkey so I am cool with it….
Are you ready?
I soon find out that rubbish goes on a pretty long journey – it goes to be made into other things, it goes on a really large pile of rubbish in the ground to get buried, it gets burned, it goes down the drain…….it is very complicated when it disappears in the bin!
So, we do love this book as it tells you about the journey of the rubbish and we think that is a good thing as we’ve always thought that granny just likes to collect it all in her house. We are very pleased that some of the rubbish goes on its travels and it is quite an exciting journey but a bit smelly so we are pleased that it is in a book and that the book is not scratch and sniff uuurgh gross
I love the flaps as this keeps me active and interested and you get to find things out for yourself by lifting them up and that is very fun to do
Recycling is cool as we have to make things out of rubbish to be used again and again and so there is no waste which is bad for the sky and the earth
This is how we monkeys like to recycle –
Tomorrow – Monkey reviews a book about a dentist which is really really funny – no honestly – it is mega funny!!!
Till tomorrow little monkeys xx
