Monkey Time by Michael Hall has cheerful, graphic illustrations. It’s all about time; in this case represented by some (60 to be exact) very cute, energetic minutes. What would you do with a minute? A good read aloud with repetitive phrasing, cleverly hidden rain forest animals, and a chance to practice counting and strengthen a conception of time. The rollicking and exuberant monkey at the heart of all the action is a stitch.
