To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have read other books in this series with my three year old daughter, but this one really takes the monkey counting thing to the next level. Some monkeys go away, other monkeys join the group, and before you know it your little one is learning to add and subtract without a formal lesson! I always had to preface the book by telling my daughter that of course kids should never go where a grownup cannot see them in the store.
My granddaughter requested this book before bedtime many times on her visits. Even after 2 years, it's one of her favorite picks; only, she reads it herself now! Good use of repetition for budding readers. They will also enjoy trying to keep track of the busy little monkeys in the fun illustrations.
This book is brilliant, as the Five Little Monkeys books tend to be. But seriously this one is SO brilliant, because it provides a hilarious way to learn mathematical concepts. My daughter basically learned addition and subtraction from this book, and reads it obsessively due to all the adorable "monkey mix-ups."
