User Review  - Mommywest - Goodreads

LOVE this book! I have definitely felt like the monkey mama when shopping with all my little monkeys! Thank goodness I haven't taken home someone else's little monkey...yet. :) This book also subtly gets kids to add and subtract to figure out how many monkeys are missing this time. So cute!
