Understanding the World

Listen to the story Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson.



In the story the butterfly tries too help monkey find his mummy but she keeps finding the wrong animals. Why didn't the butterfly know to look for an animal that looked the same as the young monkey?


Do some research with an adult to find out about some more animals and their babies. Can you learn the names of some? Can you find any other animals whose babies look different to the adults?


Share the facts you learn with me on Tapestry or create a factfile.
