Good lesson, cute package

In addition to a basket full of Easter chocolate, which Momma and Poppa happily devoured for him, Roscoe also received from his Grandparent's a great book called I Love Monkey.

The book begins with a little monkey, in socks, who really wants to be something special. He tries to be a bunny, but finds that the role is "too floppy". He tries to be a cucumber but decides that it is way "too cool". He continues to try on different roles that just don't feel quite right to Monkey.

My favorite is when Monkey tries to be sushi:

You can probably guess how the book ends. Monkey has "a wonderful thought" that perhaps if he can't be any of those other things, then he can be "one very special thing"--himself!
