This is one of the key texts we use in school 'Night Monkey Day Monkey' by Julia Donaldson. Listen to the story or read the book to your child if you have it at home.

Night Monkey, Day Monkey

When the story has finished, talk about the title of the story and the author. Your child will be able to name other stories by this author we have read in school.




When your child has listened to the story, ask them some comprehension questions about what happened.

  • Why were they called day monkey and night monkey?
  • What happened at the beginning of the story?
  • What happened at the end of the story?
  • What was the title of the story?
  • What was your favourite part of the story?
