A fun rhythmic story about drumming monkeys featuring the catchy refrain "Dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum." Older kids can drum the beat while you read the story.

This book focuses on learning parts of the body with rhyme. I remember reading this as a young child as well as reading it to my son. He loved the rhythmic verses and the monkeys in the story. This can be used as an interactive book while teaching your child about their hands, fingers and thumbs.

Great book for early learners and listeners. Fits in well with learning parts of the human body. Also a great resource for a music break or jam session.

My favorite book from when I was little. And now my boys love it too. I still knew this book by heart after so many years....

your child will want to hear this book again and again. Luckily, unlike so many other books for little ones, it's a pleasure to repeat!

Dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum...Gotta love Dr. Seuss! I literally walk down the street reciting this rhythmic book in my head. My son loves it too and always laughs from beginning to end. I imagine it will become a great comfort read when he gets older.

Superb verbal music for very young children. It's never too early to start reading it to your kid.
