Sometimes We Think You Are A Monkey



Your little arms and legs move just like you are a baby monkey climbing into the leafy branches of a tree. But you are not a monkey. Your nose twitches and your mouth moves as though you are a bunny sniffing the garden air. But you are not a bunny. Moving from animal to animal, leading to a wonderful surprise at the end, this charming story engages young readers with both the text and the adorable art. A wonderful gift for both young children and their parents, especially every new parent who can’t stop marveling at their baby.

Praise for Sometimes We Think You Are A Monkey

"Vancouver illustrator Julie Morstad provides beautiful art for this ode to babies. Using her signature nostalgic style and a vibrant palette, Morstad breathes life into the animals on the page. In each colourful spread, she goes beyond what is expressed in the text and supplies a visual clue as to what the next animal will be."-Quill & Quire "A tender tribute to infancy, aimed at parents (or grandparents) who want to curl up with a baby and a quiet book." -CM Magazine "This sweet, playful story reads like a poem from a parent to a newborn child." --The Children's Bookshelf
