Activities to Do with the Book:
This is a good mother-child read aloud. After reading it, a parent could tell a story of how the child gained some of his or her nicknames.
This book could also be used to help teach a young toddler to name the various animals incorporated into the illustrations.
Since the book includes the phrase "Mommy calls me..." multiple times, a toddler could help the parent "read" the book.
“Mommy call me Monkeypants...just why I do not know."
"Mommy calls me Splishy-splash....'cause we play in a puddle."
"Mommy calls me Funny Face...and look-she has one, too!"
