Author-Illustrator Michael Hale will share his book, Bad Monkey Business and will help participants explore the differences between monkeys and apes. Bad Monkey Business is the story of a woman who unwittingly lets a monkey into her home and he immediately starts filling it up with animals. She has no idea why. A humorous story with a surprise twist. This rhyming, read-aloud for children ages 2 to 7 was awarded a Spark Honor Award by The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators in 2018.
