Baby-PreK 26 pages Robin Corey Books January 2009 Board book    

Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants is a sweet board book that focuses on the silly nicknames that mothers have for the children. A lightning bug calls her glowing daughter a shooting star, a loving panda calls her hug-loving daughter Snuggle-up, and Splishy-splash is what a frog calls her daughter for their love of jumping through puddles.

In a more pragmatic approach, Number Twelve is the name assigned to a small fish who exists among an entire school of brothers and sisters, while Tagalong is the name of the monkey who tends to remain by his momís side.

Since most mothers have unique ways of referring to their children, itís surprising that there arenít more books that tackle this topic. Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants is charming look at this phenomenon. For those who havenít yet solidified nicknames of their own, this book will likely encourage the start of an amusing conversation between a parent and child to join in the fun.
