Then one night at dinner, something crazy happens. His dad burps all through dinner, and even starts eating with his hands. His mom toots through the whole meal. And his baby sister just picks her nose and eats it! Yuck! Pete is disgusted! He asks his family why they are acting that way, and they tell him they are just acting like he does. Pete looks down at his dirty hands and face and realizes he just tooted! He is shocked.
Do you think Pete learns his lesson? You'll just have to read it and find out. *Spoiler alert* He does.
I thought this book was hilarious and adorable. I'm not squeamish at all though. If you don't like mentions of burps or toots, this book is not for you. Chances are, the 5 year old in your life will find this hysterical, especially if you made the sounds along with the book. CJ loved the monkey pictures. Personally, I was a little confused as to how Pete's dad is a gorilla and Pete is a monkey, but maybe he's his step-dad. I don't know. This book is a good way to get kid's to realize how their actions affect those around them. It's a great way to talk about manners too. I would say the best age range is from 2-8 years old. 5 monkey paws way up.
