Monkey Business

monkeybusinessIt is June in Michigan, which means the world is finally green again and the school year is ending. Sometimes, near the end of the school year, you need something that is just fun. If it meets a curriculum goal, that’s great, but there are those moments when we all just need a moment of shared silliness–at school or at home. Fortunately, Wallace Edwards’ Monkey Business is written for just such a moment.

From the very large cat being let out of the bag, to the beaver looking for something else to sink his teeth into, Monkey Business is a treasure of imagination.

So share the book and write the next chapters. Have some fun. And guess what? You’ll reinforce curriculum and creativity!
