Monkey and Elephant and the Babysitting Adventure

By Carole Lexa Schaefer
Illustrated by Galia Bernstein

Join best friends Monkey and Elephant on their fifth and final adventure, in which they attempt to do something they’ve never done before: babysit!

When Monkey’s cousin MeeMee tells Monkey and Elephant she needs someone to watch her three babies for an afternoon, the two friends volunteer. But Monkey and Elephant don’t quite know what to expect. Will babysitting be hard? Will they need some rules? Will they be any good at it? And when some old baddies show up, will the two babysitters know what to do? Beginning readers will recognize the conflicting feelings that come with trying new things even as they delight in the antics of this unlikely pair of friends.

  • The fifth and final Monkey and Elephant adventure!
  • A sweetly humorous and gently reassuring story that is pitch-perfect for the emergent reader.
  • Written by an early education specialist.
