Illus. in full color. A madcap band of dancing, prancing monkeys explain hands, fingers, and thumbs to beginning readers.
Unfortunately, it hasn't become a favorite of theirs. I'm not sure if the colors are too "earthy" (mostly brown, yellow and orange) for them or if they just have other stronger interests (horses and firetrucks and construction trucks right now at a little over 2 1/2) However, I like to pull it out and read it simply because *I* enjoy the rhyme and rhythm.
But as the therapist pointed out, it is a great book for early readers and for toddlers to participate in the actions and to "read" (memorize). And it uses lots of sounds that are often difficult for children (th, ending consonant sounds on one syllable words). So while the color scheme is not the bright primary colors of many toddler books, I still recommend it for the easy and fun reading.
