I'm really surprised I haven't heard more librarians raving about this book. Monkeys are almost always a hit with preschoolers, and this book has some fantastic interactive elements. Absolutely every child loved the ending.
Of course, the perfect follow-up to this was Five Little Monkeys Sitting In A Tree with sign language. Thanks to Marge for making the video and Amy to linking to it. It took the kids a few minutes to catch onto this one, but usually once you got to monkey three they were all pro.
In between stories I did Wiggle Your Fingers, which I originally found in Amy's post. If you don't know it, here's how it goes:
Wiggle Your Fingers!
Wiggle your fingers up,
Wiggle your fingers down.
Wiggle your fingers all around.
Wiggle them on your shoulders,
Wiggle them on your head.
Wiggle them on your knees,
And tuck them into bed.
So there you have it. Here are the books the preschoolers in my town have been loving. Please feel free to tell me if you've had any great outreach successes.
