Where Did The Monkeys Go?

This is the third book in the series. The boy in the story really wants to see the monkeys at the zoo but is having trouble finding them. It is based outings to the zoo with my family when I was a child. I remember feeling sad when we could not find the animals that we were hoping to see and then feeling excited when we found where they we hiding. The book features primates, which are illustrated in the book and described in the learning pages. Monkeys and apes are fascinating and highly intelligent. I hope you have fun singing the song and learning about primates!
