Synopsis

The tiny monkeys won't let the need to build a shelter interrupt their fun. But when night rolls around, their wet and cold coat reminds them of its importance. Based on a tale from the Brazilian rain forest, this young, lively South American tale is an irresistible read-aloud with repetitive rhythm and captivating artwork. Full color.
