Grumpy Monkey

“Grumpy Monkey” written by: Suzanne Lang Illustrated by: Max Lang Publisher: Random House

📚

I picked up “Grumpy Monkey” on a February trip to Barnes and noble. I was drawn to the cover my Jim Panzee’s (main character) expression. Who of us doesn’t have grumpy days? Sometimes we can’t even explain why we are having a bad day. This was the case for Jim. For everyone else the day was beautiful, the sun was out, the sky was blue and the bananas were sweet!

📚

Define-confused, grumpy, whispered

📚

Synonyms-have your child provide synonyms for the following words: wonderful, stroll

📚

Wh-questions- why was Jim having a bad day? Why is it okay to have a bad day for no reason?

📚

Verbs-stand, walk, hunched, raise, trip, frown, sing, swing, roll, lay, jump, dance,

📚

Figurative language-What does it mean. When someone says “I don’t feel happy inside?” What does it mean to “storm off”?

📚

Non-verbal comprehension-what facial expressions does Jim make that help you understand what he is feeling?

📚

I will have a reading of the book on my website soon. You can also head to you tube for readings. #speechtherapy #language #booksandlanguage #childrensbooks #grumpymonkey #suzannelang #maxlang #randomhouse #nytimesbestseller
