Monkey: Not Ready for the Baby

Monkey: Not Ready for the Baby. Marc Brown. 2016. Random House. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Monkey is having a rough day, and then it gets worse. "We're having a baby!" "Our family is growing!" "You'll be a big brother just like me!"

Premise/plot: Monkey is not excited about being a big brother. He does not want a baby at his house. Will he change his mind after the baby comes?

My thoughts: I liked this one. I did. The story was a bit predictable, but it was also easy to relate to. The ending was sweet. I am glad that he gets a little sister!!!
