Every child is a marvel, a unique and irreplaceable gift to the world — but, down deep, not every child believes it. It’s up to us — parents, teachers and grandparents — to let our children know that they are loved and treasured just as they are. That’s what makes the I Love Monkey book so special. Throughout the book Monkey tries to be something special — a squirrel, a bunny, a grasshopper, a fish. But Monkey finally realizes that the most special thing of all is to just be yourself — no one in the whole wide world can ever do that better than you. Share the universal message found in the I Love Monkey book with children, teens, and adults.

Suzanne Kaufman lives with two monkeys, Eleanor and Katie, who sometimes pretend to be girls. Her story was inspired by them, a series of goofy doodles and a cup of coffee with the really nice people at Compendium. Born in the Midwest, Suzanne grew up with a healthy dose of Saturday morning cartoons and macaroni and cheese. Her style is inspired by lots and lots and lots of monkeys and 50’s-era cartoons.
