CHILDREN’S BOOK REVIEW
Book: Monkey Puzzle (known as Where’s My Mom in the US)
By: Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
2-year-old Mishika’s rating: ❤❤❤❤❤
This is one of her favourite books. I would totally recommend it. The book is about a little monkey who can’t find its mom and a cute butterfly helps out. The story has a very creative take on how the butterfly think that perhaps the elephant, snake or some other jungle animal might be the monkey’s mom. But no spoilers here.
The colours and illustrations are wonderful, and I am trying to recreate a few with Mishika in her drawing sessions of homeschooling.
Now Mishika kind of ‘reads’ the storybook herself turning pages and asking if the monkey found its mom. The joy on her face is always the same when she reached the last page. She often comes and hugs me as she finds her own mummy ❤😘
Go for this Monkey Puzzle / Where’s My Mom board book, not easy to tear by babies and little toddlers!
