Let loveable characters Monkey and Mo take you on a musical journey, singing, dancing and playing all kinds of instruments as they share the joy of music in Angie Coates' Monkey Music Magic Sounds .

Music is a fundamental part of pre-school children's development, helping them to enjoy socializing, learning and playing. Based on the award-winning Monkey Music classes and featuring the much-loved illustrations of Emily Bolam, this series encourages children to begin their own lifetime love of music and boosts their educational and emotional growth.

The CD includes twenty fantastic sing-along songs that can be enjoyed on their own, on the go or alongside the book which also offers tips for getting the most out of each song.

I absolutely loved discoveri this book with my little boy it's was very educational, he loves getting this book out every evening and singing along. It's fantastic how it has a cd which you can sing along too as his cousin was visiting the other day and it meant that he could also get involved. I would definitely recommend!!

We absolutely love this second addition of monkey music. Sadly there are no lessons close to us, but we absolutely love these cds & booksets. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds with these two cds and my sanity is very gladly appreciative of a new cd out, I know all the words off by heart from the first cd! This CD is packed full of pre school learning fun. I do think they miss out by putting best for babies on back of book, i think some people could be put off by this, i would if i didn't know the series. This is definitely great for preschool children. We home nursery so this really is amazing, it even gets daddy and nanny up dancing and singing (I even catch Nanny singing along at home to it). It really helps with Sophie's speaking skills. I have bought the first book & cd for many of my friends 1st birthday presents along with drums/maracas. It makes an amazing little person present, all the mums have commented on how much they love it. Ill be buying this one for their next birthdays. The book is a strong board book with bold high quality print illustration's that is easy for Sophie and mummy to follow, especially the first few times to learn the songs. I cant express enough how much we love this book, Sophie gets her maracas, tambourine out as soon as she sees me get the CD out. I've been looking on the website and now im after their CDs and Monkey himself! I love how this CD has can you find monkey from the first CD, its nice to have a familiar track. Sophie can easily do the actions now, she especially loved pulling silly faces. But its not too easy, its nice way to follow instructions and  do active learning. They have a nice poem in this one and lots of animal, bugs and weather sounds. We cant wait for the next edition!

What a great book and cd. Monkey music does classes which I'm keen to try out now. My two kids loved learning new songs and my eldest loved following the words in the brightly coloured book. This would be a lovely gift

This is a beautiful book, with lovely characters and lots of fabulous bright colours.
Jess is 4, and I think the book would be better suited for younger children, but she still really loves it - and particularly loves the CD.
We're going to pass the book and CD on to a younger friend who I think will get lots of pleasure out of it over the next few years (and help his parents to learn songs other than the usual nursery rhymes!).

Monkey Music Magic Sounds: Book and CD Pack 9781509823994

Nicely illustrated book, I love the colors and the look of it, my daughter also loves it, with various songs. Unfortunatelly the same woman sings all the songs and it gets very boring. It could be better if the soundtracks were made better and if the book could be used without them. Zelma bring it to me very often, but if I just read the songs it is not too interesting and the illustrations not reflet the story line. In general, it could be better if the whole come together somehow and do not need to play the music all of the time to use the book. 
Also these musics, are easy, but I think there are more famous ones and better ones in rythm and rhymes.

A beautifully illustrated book, my daughter loves animals and loved looking at the pictures. The cd is the real highlight, really fun songs to sing along to. My daughter is 5  and did enjoy this book but may be better for toddler or nursery children

My little boy had one of these books when he was younger, which he loved. Now 5, he did like this one and singing a long to the cd. Although I think it's more suited to younger children. Overall they are fun learning songs.

This lovely board book is centred around two monkeys, Monkey and Mo who go on different adventures. Through the fantastic illustrations of the book you can see that they visit various places and the illustrations feature other animals along the way. The board book itself is well made and very sturdy and the illustrations are colourful and engaging. The words used in the book are actually words to the songs which are on the 20 track CD. Yes 20, how fab! There is no story in the book but the music is telling the story about Monkey and Mo. The pages also have question prompts to make it more interactive as are some of the songs. For example, there is one asking what can you see in your garden and another which plays sounds that can be heard in the countryside asking what those sounds could be? (Animal noises and the like) The songs on the CD are all new ones to us which my eldest daughter liked. One particular favourite was a song all about  the beach and making sandcastles and incorporates action words like "tap tap" which makes it all that more memorable and very fun! There were a couple of songs that I felt were a bit tricky to sing as you need to be able to sing very high. My youngest daughter also enjoyed the music and loved hearing all the different animal noises. This will prove a great resource in the car, particularly on longer car journeys.

My nearly 2 year old daughter loved the CD but we would have loved the book to have been more of a story than just the song words. Brilliantly illustrated book but I don't think it's one that will be looked at very often, I'm sure the cd will provide car entertainment for a long time to come.
