    1 thought on “Monkey and Elephant: Candlewick Sparks”

    1. In the spirit of the friendship greats, Elephant & Piggie, Frog & Toad, Cork & Fuzz, George & Martha, and Minnie & Moo, here come Monkey & Elephant. This book capitalizes on the setting of the jungle and teaches opposites as Monkey and Elephant negotiate their friendship. Love it!

    2. I like that elephant galumps but the book falls a little flat in the humor/interest department. My daughter was hoping it would be like elephant and piggie and it is not.

    3. I like this early chapter book series, featuring two friends who are different, but are close friends.

    4. A hot day will test any friendship as those of us who have lived in the South for much of our lives can attest. In this simple story told in three chapters, good friends Elephant and Monkey go in search for shade so they can cool off. But they start to get on each other's nerves pretty quickly since Monkey moves too slowly for Elephant and Elephant moves too quickly for Monkey. Even when they stop for water, Monkey drinks it too slowly, too daintily, while Elephant splooshes all the water in a p [...]

    5. Story is disappointing. It is a picture book in the form of an easy chapter book--which appealed to me immensely. I was excited to read it and wanted to like it. I can see where the author wanted to go with the story, but it fails on all counts.Unfortunately the author did not capitalize on the format. If this was going to be published it would have been better suited in a larger format picture book, as the illustrations by Galia Bernstein are very good. They have bright, flat, pleasing jewel to [...]

    6. "Monkey and Elephant" by Carole Lexa Schaefer is a story about two very different animals with two very different personalities but they are friends nonetheless. They live in the jungle and it is so hot that they can barely stand the heat.d almost each other! In this 3 chapter book, Monkey and Elephant begin a journey in search of shade. They bicker, sing and have fun along the way.This beginning chapter book is great for emerging readers, older struggling readers or any reader who is looking fo [...]

    7. Monkey and Elephant are two very good friends with two very different personalities. When they set out for shade in a very hot jungle they start bickering about what the other one is doing. Will these two unlikely pals make it to shade before they become no longer friends. This book is aimed at the newly independent readers. Although it is suitable for younger grades I think it would be a good book for older students who struggle with reading. It is filled with crazy adjectives, action words, an [...]

    8. Monkey and Elephant by Carole Lexa Schaefer, illustrated by Galia Bernstein is a story of two friends who don't agree all the time.Bernstein's illustrations were created digitally and emphasize the humor in the story. The facial features are expressive, particularly the eys. My favorite images are scampered, away together, too much, both singing, scary, quiet!, and final image.This easy to read, humorous story in chapter book format will appeal to picturebook readers ready to begin short chapter [...]

    9. Monkey and Elephant are friends. But they are not exactly at their best in this chapter adventure for young readers. For it is extremely, irritatingly HOT, HOT, HOT. And the day is ripe for complaining and whining. Can these two friends make the best of an impossibly hot day? In the first chapter, Monkey and Elephant start off on their journey to find a shade tree. Before long, both are too thirstya puddle only provides temporary relief. In the second chapter, the two sing songs to one another. [...]

    10. From the mouth of my 7-year oldIt is about a Monkey and an Elephant in 3 chapters. The Monkey and Elephant are friends. They need to find shade. They sing and they protect each other. Her thoughts: It was funny! It was easy for me to read. The pictures were great. Have you read it? Did you like it?My thoughts: I enjoyed listening to her read this to me. She read right through it easily, and really liked that she had read a chapter book in one sitting! She was so proud of her reading skills! :) I [...]

    11. In this simple story told in three chapters, good friends Elephant and Monkey go in search for shade so they can cool off. But they start to get on each other's nerves pretty quickly since Monkey moves too slowly for Elephant and Elephant moves too quickly for Monkey. Even when they stop for water, Monkey drinks it too slowly, too daintily, while Elephant splooshes all the water in a puddle all over them. They end up singing songs and having fun again before Monkey is threatened by three wildcat [...]

    12. This is a short chapter book (3 chapters) about a Monkey and an Elephant who are best friends. They have to find shade where they live. They protect one another by singing, and it shows how important friendship is using the characters' well thought-out emotions and feelings. This book is good for ages 5 and up. It is a chapter book, but one that is very easy to read. Students can easily follow it, and will really enjoy the friendship that the two animals have. It could be a great lesson about cl [...]

    13. This is the perfect book for students who are hesitant to start chapter books. Bright colorful pictures fill most of every page, while the writing quantity still picks up a bit more from a typical picture book. Also, written in chapter book format which gives children that confidence that they are working toward reading at a higher level.

    14. I often wish I had more "beginning chapter book" options than Danny & the DInosaur, Henry & Mudge, and the Mr. Putter & Tabby series. This is the answer to all of my wishes. Now if I can only convince our school to get a set of them

    15. I picked this up because it's an easy chapter book that I thought my daughter would enjoy reading herself. She thought it was okay. The illustrations are cute, but the story is boring and the vocabulary is too simple.

    16. The friendship of monkey and elephant is tested on a hot jungle day ! Great vocabulary for emerging young readers, evolking smiles and giggles, encompassed in three early chapters. Fun book to amplify with sound effects and is neither "too long or too short" it's just right. Reviewer 3.

    17. Monkey and Elephant are the best of friends even though they don't always agree on everything. This short, three chapter book tells the tale of the two friends looking for shade.
