never smile at a monkey

May 15, 2012

A few afternoons ago, we were in our backyard. I heard Juliet call to me, "Um, mom?"


I think there's that lizard we read about in THAT book.

What book?


Oh. Let me see. Hmmmmm...I think it's different, but let's check to make sure.

We got out the book and double-checked. Sure enough, the lizard in question was not the venomous one we were instructed to never touch, but just a regular- old, touchable one.

Back to the book, though. It's fantastic. Every animal is dangerous in some way and it tells you how to avoid them (most live in exotic places, so there is no chance of us ever running into any of them, but still, it was an exciting read.)

If your child is very sensitive or easily scared, this might not be the best book, but for us, we loved it.

We've recently started to really enjoy non-fiction, so it has opened up a whole new world of books for us.

Never Smile at a Monkey: And 17 Other Important Things to Remember is just one of several books by Steve Jenkins that look to be really good.

Next on our list is What Do You Do When Something Wants To Eat You?

Run? :)
