Little Chimp's Big Day by Lisa Schroeder
I initially passed on this book on the new book cart because I don't like monkeys that much, but a coworker said that it's really cute, and...she was right!
This story is told in a rhyming format and is about a little chimp who falls to the jungle floor when the branch he's sitting on snaps. He's left to his own devices in the jungle for the first time--he sees a bunch of neat things and sees other jungle animals...but he still misses his mom.
Sure enough, his mother finds him at the end of the story and all is well.
The pictures are really cute! This would make a good storytime book.
