BookTall by Jez Alborough

I love Jez Alborough for this group. Here he tells a simple and enticing story about smiling jungle friends in the forest. Bobo the monkey goes around comparing his height to his animal friends. Sometimes he is small and sometimes he is tall, but in the end when he takes a fall, his Mom is there to catch him.
