Just Monkeying around…

This week we learned all about the letter Mm.  I absolutely love monkeys and on Tuesday, we had a busy and fun day learning all about them.  We read books, learned songs and made a really cute craft!

Little Monkey Lost by Keith DuQuette

This book has lots of monkeys in it that are mostly from South and Central America.  I shared some pictures with the children from a cruise I went on last summer.  We had many encounters with monkeys in Belize and Honduras.  It was an amazing experience and the kids really enjoyed seeing the pictures.
