All 3 of my children LOVE this book. The fun and rhythm of the book is great for the older 2 (6&7) and the gorgeous pictures are loved by my baby (7 month old). 

Perfect for every age. One of my favourites too!

Really nice book. Words flow well and storyline is sweet. It is about how the day and night monkeys see things differently. My son enjoys it a lot. Another great book by Julia Donaldson!!

This has become one of Georgie's favourite nighttime stories. She loves monkeys and loves the fun and games that these two get up to. 
She likes the rhythm of the rhyming lines and likes repeating the 'Don't be daft!' line! 
I love how the monkeys experience each other's worlds and that their first experiences are seen through the eyes of a child and how a child would describe new things that they see.

This is one of the very first books that I bought for my first child when he was a baby, and continues to remain a family favourite. The differences between day and night are explained by two monkey friends when they decide to spend a day in each others lives.  The poem is delightful and captures very well how small children view the world. I also really like the illustrations which are very cute.

In this story there are two monkeys; one that sleeps in the day and one that sleeps at night. Then one day the day monkey can't sleep and sees what the jungle is like at night and then they swap over. I enjoy the play on words in this book, the illustrations are great and it's interesting for the kids to learn a little about the jungle.
