Little Chimps Big Day....Review & Giveaway



There is the most charming book being released in a couple of weeks and I wanted to be the first one to tell you
all about it.  Little Chimps Big Day by Lisa Shroeder is a darling story about a day full of adventure for a little chimp on his own (or so he thinks!).

Little Chimps Big Day starts off with the little chimp sitting in a tree when the branch snaps, causing him to tumble on a big adventure.  He plays peek-a-boo with a frog, makes friends with a hippo and snacks on bananas all while wondering "where could Mother be".  A careful look on each of the pages shows glimpses of his attentive mother, there the whole time, keeping a careful eye on her little one while remaining out of sight.  When Little Chimp and his mother are reunited, Little Chimp is proud of his bravery during his day "on his own" but he whispers to his mother "I'm so glad you are here".

I think the book shares what so many children face....the need for independence coupled with the need for security from mom.  Knowing that the Mother Chimp was there all along watching is a great concept for children sending the message that  you can be on your own but know you are not alone.  Love it!  I also love the illustrations done by Lisa McCue.  The chimps are absolutely adorable, the colors nice and vivid, and it is so much fun to search the pictures to see where Mother Chimp is hiding.  This book will quickly become a favorite for your child!  This hardcover book is 24 pages long and recommended for ages 4-8.  Be sure to reserve your copy now on Amazon.com...
