A hilarious, high-energy romp by a beloved author and an exciting new artist.

Sleepy little monkey won’t get out of bed. Mama called the Doctor and the Doctor said: “Apple Juice, Orange Juice, Gooseberry Pies — Monkey needs some exercise!”

Sleepy little monkeys everywhere will clap, stomp, shake, and cheer while chanting this rhythmic, energetic dance song based on a popular playground game.

And as they move their heads, hands, hips, and feet, everyone will be bursting with clapping energy and ready to start a new day!

With humour, high energy, and Bill Martin Jr’s trademark rhythm and rhyme, young readers will learn to name parts of the body. And the book makes a perfect exercise warm-up to start off a busy day of school!

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr, illustrated by Lois

Ehlert:

“ This nonsense verse delights with its deceptively simple narrative and with the repetition of such

catchy phrases as ‘skit skat skoodle doot.’’’ —Publishers Weekly

Praise for Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr,

illustrated by Eric Carle:

“It’s a terrific book for teaching colors and...it’s a high-interest, beginning reader with rhythm,

repetition, and predictability.” —Booklist
