In this funny picture book, Heather Tekavec turns the topic of manners and behaviour on its head and offers a clever, non-preachy way to begin discussions with young children about social skills and self-control - key skills for school readiness. The old zookeeper has no idea how much trouble it will cause when she moves the monkeys into a cage near the picnic and play areas. Now the monkeys can watch the children up close, and they find the children so fascinating that before long, they start behaving just like them! Mother Monkey is not amused - manners aren't for monkeys!
