I take my daughter to Monkey Music classes, so she was delighted when I bought her this book. She loves spotting Mo the monkey on every page. The cd is great and she loves singing along to it.

Thank you very much for this lovely book. My daughter loves it, she takes it everywhere. It is very colorful, full with nice illustrations and has a CD, the music is nice And Zelma loves to dance around. It is very interactive, and educational too. It can be played daily and has some music which teaches different things, like this the parents and the kids can play together.

We bought this book after attending Monkey Music classes. The songs complement those covered in class, so it was lovely to continue practising what we'd learned once we'd left the class. The illustrations are bright and colourful and feature all the Monkey Music characters.

Big hit with my 20 month old! Lots of catchy little tunes, that even had me singing along. We had great fun looking through the book together, searching for the characters - in between busting some moves of course. Lots of fun, fab cd and it's great that it's a board book as it will withstand little hands that still don't quite understand that not all paper should be ripped.

My son (32 months) loves this book and accompanying CD. There are 22 songs and my son loved dancing and learning the actions to these which are suggested throughout the book. The book is bright and colourful and beautifully illustrated. Fab book and firm favourite in our house now.

I have just put this CD on and I can still hear it as Daddy and Sophie are dancing around and singing together. Sophie loves it, clapping her hands and dancing around. I know Nanny will be a massive fan of this too. It nice to have children's music. The book is a great hardback book, brilliant for toddlers hands. Sophie loves turning the pages. great illustrations and lots of fun looking at everything and dancing! I know this is done by a toddler music group, I might look into where the nearest one is to me!

I've had this for a week now and it's been brilliant. We do it in two sessions. I love the lessons it teaches, instruments, left, right, tuning around. Sophie does it with me and many and we all love it. My mum commented that it's nice to do something different as she has worked in childcare for fourth plus years. She loves it. Sophie was brilliant at animal noises , she improved leaps and bounds already with development. She loves generally clapping and dancing too and we get the tambourines and maracas out too. Lots of fun, my friends are now getting this book and CD too.

We don't live close to a Monkey Music class any more so this book is a lovely way to continue to enjoy Monkey and Mo's songs. The book is really sturdy and so colourful. My toddler has spent ages looking at the colourful pictures. The CD is really cheerful and easy to listen to. We've had it on in the car and van already sing along!

We absolutely loved this book. The CD that goes with it really makes the book for us. We have already been dancing along to the different songs and using instruments to join in when we can with the music. I read it with my little one and although he can't read alone yet he was keen to get involved and always asks when he needs to turn the page. You can really get a lot out of this sing-along book and we love it and have played it many times already.

We only got this book couple of days ago but the first thing I had to do was drag out an old cd-player so our little girl could enjoy the book to its full potential. The music is different, very catchy and that's what makes the book come to life. She absolutely adores the songs and points out to different things on the pages, recon it won't be long before she can recite everything with the cd as it's on non stop heh
It's a lovely concept that will hold on to the changes of time.

This is a great book...we've been taking it in the car with us and has been making car journeys abit more calmer and fun. My daughter loves singing and dancing along. I'm glad its a hard book as I can see it being taken everywhere with us and getting abit of a bashing! The pages are lovely, bright and colourful too.

This board book is a lovely way to introduce children to monkey and mo. I've attended monkey music classes with both my children and the accomplish CD features 22 beautifully written songs that are great to play in the car or at home following the journey with the book. The book is very good quality making it toddler proof. Illustrations are bold, bright and colourful and appeal to young eyes.
