In 10 Cheeky Monkeys by Kat Michels, young readers get to see ten cheeky monkeys making faces at the kids who are visiting the zoo. One cheeky monkey is running off to climb a vine while the other nine monkeys are sitting with their heads in books, reading about heroes, great legends, and crooks. One studious monkey sees that he is late and the rest of the eight sassy monkeys are busy making a bow out of a cloth and hold a fashion show. Then one of them takes the fashion show to Devon. The rest of the seven monkeys scheme and plot underneath a hood and, as the book progresses, children not only learn counting but also some new words that will enhance their vocabulary.

This book is a fun read and a good way to introduce children to counting. The rhyming verses and illustrations make it appealing to readers and give a good pace and movement while reading. The author makes learning and teaching fun for children and the mischievous and sassy monkeys will put a smile on the faces of readers. It is a good book to have in school libraries as it can be used for interactive learning sessions in classrooms, and parents and grandparents will find it very useful when it comes to teaching their kids and grandkids counting. Books like this are good for children, and parents and teachers can introduce new concepts to them to make learning fun and interesting.
