Always a good time - esp to read aloud.

Perhaps I will like this when Audrey is older. Right now it just feels really freaking dumb and pointless. Even for a book about the explorations of hands and what they can do......yeah it left a lot to be desired.

Mx requested this multiple times. Odd and lacked a plot; M & D didn't like it so much. M&D gave away before Ms was old enough to tell us if he liked it or not.

Upon reading this book I was trying to figure out why this book was banned. It was a story of monkeys. They showed off their fingers, they played the drums and other instruments, and talked with friends. Why was this book banned? Apparently, someone thought that this book was associating African culture with monkeys. I don’t see this because the moneys do more than play drums, they also play banjos and fiddles. I don’t think African culture when I think banjos and fiddles. I think deep south and dueling banjos, and the Hatfields and McCoys comes more to mind. So, I do not see the connection of this story to African culture and do not feel it’s racist. HOWEVER, anyone who does feel that, has valid feelings, and I will not denigrate that. If someone feels that way, then yes, this is a problematic book. But should this book be banned… No.… (més)
