Review: Cheeky Monkey Manners Series - Listening / Taking Turns

Whether it be remembering to say please and I’m sorry, or learning to listen and take turns, the Cheeky Monkey Manners Series provides a wonderfully helpful and fun platform to teach young children manners.

In Lisa Kerr’s newest board books, Listening and Taking Turns, Cheeky Monkey is up to mischief again. He doesn’t mean to be cheeky, but he just can’t help himself.

In Taking Turns, Cheeky Monkey is most excited to have his friends over to play.

He loves showing off his new bubble blowing toy, his new skipping rope and even his favourite set of blocks but Cheeky Monkey needs to learn how to take turns, before all his friends leave. Luckily Mama suggests a great way to encourage Cheeky Monkey to share.

In Listening, Mama asks Cheeky Monkey to go to the shops to buy her some items but Cheeky Monkey hasn’t listened carefully and so he learns a lesson the hard way.

Young children will fall in love with Cheeky Monkey as they explore these new books about manners. Both the text and illustrations are fun and playful. A valuable addition to any household with young children, the Cheeky Monkey Manners Series is a great way of teaching and discussing the importance of learning manners.

Other titles in the series include Please, Excuse Me, Thank You and Sorry.
