It is always a pleasure to have in my hands a book that a little child will hold and love. When the impressionable mind and heart of a child latches onto a colorful, fist sized treasure that he can carry around with him as he toddles throughout his unfolding life, and when that treasure can engage him with simple yet cute pictures, then we are ready to see a mind and heart embark on a learning adventure.
"Playtime Manners for Little Monkeys," text and illustrations by Susie Lee Jin, is a small board book that takes the monkeys through a playdate when they learn to play together nicely and to share. Though published by a Christian publishing house, there is no Scripture or Bible lesson involved in the book. Just a good, simple lesson in manners.
At roughly $5, you can afford to let you little one be a bit messy with this one and not worry if it gets tattered in the effort of learning.
I was provided a complimentary copy of Playtime Manners for Little Monkeys by Harvest House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
