A lively board book that examines the issue of not listening in an amusing but reassuring way through animal characters – perfect for young children who forget to listen. The story offers a gentle way in to reinforce good behaviour.

Monkey is so excited about a go-kart race that he doesn’t listen to any of the instructions. He doesn’t stop to check his kart and he nearly ruins the race for all the animals. Can Monkey learn to listen and pay attention or will the race be abandoned for good?

The Behaviour Matters series is perfect for sharing with children as a gentle means of discussing their emotions, boosting self-esteem and reinforcing good behaviour. Each book has a fun story featuring fantastic characters. They support the Personal, Social and Emotional Development Area of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

‘Excellent for sharing and encouraging discussion… we can all learn from the approach taken in this series.’ Parents in Touch
