I love using this feltboard story, because I get the attendees to participate in the chant that repeats throughout the story: “Monkey and me…monkey and me…” As the group chants, they also pat their knees to the beat of the words. Interactive fun!
Pictured here are the pieces I made for this feltboard version of Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett. A little girl and her stuffed animal monkey have visited a zoo, and they list off each of the animals they saw there, including kangaroos, bats, penguins, elephants, and monkeys.
