Pages: 32 Paperback
Date Published: August 7th, 2012
Publisher: House Books for Young Readers
Monkey Play is an energetic companion to Bear Hugs and Panda Kisses.
One by one, monkeys add to the jungle fun—swinging from palm trees, hiding in an Indian market, and playing from sundown to sun-up!
This playful Step 1 features a rhyming text with a bouncy rhythm and bright illustrations.
Oh how much cuteness can you pack into one little early reader book! These monkeys are full of curiosity and mischief as many monkeys are. We have not yet read Bear Hugs or Panda Kisses, but we have read Alyssa’s many Biscuit stories and love them, so it is no surprise that Monkey Play is a big hit with this mama and preschool early reader. Fun rhymes and a great rhythm on every page make an adventure possible with these monkeys from the trees through the village and on into the Zoo. I’m certain this is going on our wishlist to buy for our own shelf!

From its inception, Step into Reading has set the standard. Random House was the first trade publisher to: implement a leveling system that recognized the different developmental stages of beginning readers; offer a learning-to-read series as original paperbacks; and publish a mix of original and licensed titles. That commitment has never wavered. Step into Reading continues to be the industry leader with exciting fiction and nonfiction, favorite licenses and characters (including Barbie, Thomas the Tank Engine, Disney, Arthur, Winnie the Pooh and Sesame Street), and innovative line extensions such as Step into Reading Math Readers, Step into Reading Phonics Readers, Step into Reading Sticker Books, and Step into Reading Write-In Readers—Step into Reading is truly a complete literacy program with something to offer every child. Remember, a lifetime love of learning starts with a single step!
