Banana! by Ed Vere
Banana is the word. In this hilarious picture book Ed Vere uses basically two words, banana and please to tell a whole story. A monkey has a banana, another monkey wants it. Using exclamation marks and questions marks we get enough intonation to completely "hear" the dialogue between the two monkeys. It's a great read aloud that younger kids will truly enjoy. They will soon have memorized the book and will be asking you to listen to them reading it.
