Book Nook: Tales for Your Monkey's Mind

Tales For Your Monkey’s Mind” is a fun book, in the vein of Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl, and Dr. Seuss - quirky and imaginative, with vibrant illustrations and themes of fantasy and wonder throughout.
I had a chance to review this book by Steve Reedy, a counselor who has spent over 20 years studying the human body and the psychology of the human mind. During these years he became fascinated with the side effects of our social structure, how it affects children, and continues to affect them as they grow into adults.
“I decided to write my observations in the form of a children’s book. I did this for two reasons. First, I believed that the information would be more interesting if written with witches, toy factories, and rhyme. Second, it would be more fun to write,” Reedy said.
Each of the six stories in “Tales For Your Monkey’s Mind” will lead its readers through different perspectives of life and return them changed from the journey. So leave the safety of your tree and set your inner child free. With all the wonders you will see, it’s worth the trip; you will agree. 
The stories were fun and engaging, short and easy to read, and enjoyable ways to end the day. My older daughter enjoyed them too, with stories of clowns and toys and other fun, fantasy elements.
