My son is 2 years old. We have been working on teaching him to be calm and reverent at church (a difficult task). This book has been a great help. We read it every night at bed, he loves the animals! On Saturday night while we read we lay out his "best pants, shirt, shoes and tie", he knows in the morning we will be going to church. The only part I change is the ending I tell him he wears a tie just like daddy. We still struggle with being calm for a whole hour, however he folds him arms and walks soft. He even stopped the older kids the other day from running and told them "no running, walk church". I suggest this book to any mother who has a monkey just like mine!
I purchased this children's book because my grandchildren were coming to visit. It has become their favorite bedtime story. We love the message and the pictures!!
Love the colorful illustrations!
"MONDAY I WAS A MONKEY: A "tail" of reverence" is a wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated childrens book! I look forward to sharing it with the kids and feel confident it will serve our family well as an ally in our efforts to teach and increase reverence.
Thank you Jennie and Jennifer for sharing your talents and inspiration with us! This book is a wonderful addition to our library and one that we will enjoy for many years!
