This picture book story will help to develop your child’s language and literacy skills, especially their listening skills. Watching it together is a great way of encouraging your child to enjoy books and the whole process of storytelling. The activity is also great for stimulating their imagination as they listen to Alex tell the funny tale of a cheeky monkey who paints all the animals while they are sleeping.
How to extend the magic
Why not create a special storytelling den in the corner of the room and come up with your own funny tale. It can be about anything you like and it can be as crazy or silly as you like! Think about who your main character will be and where your adventure will be set (a castle, at sea, in space, underground - wherever you want).
