“The Three Little Howlers” is the story of three howler monkeys who live in the tropical rainforest. The three brothers chose three different places to build their homes. The first monkey builds a home amongst the branches of a kapok tree and decorates it with orchids. The second monkey chooses a field of corn as the place for building the home. The monkey makes a strong house using clay and stone. Along comes a jaguar who wants to gobble up the monkeys. Do the monkeys escape the clutches of the jaguar?
“The Three Little Howlers” draws inspiration from the classic children’s story of “Thre Little Pigs”. However, while the basic idea might be similar, this book changes the characters to “howler monkeys” and “jaguar”. The story has a strong South American flavour, which is the habitat of howler monkeys. With the help of colourful illustrations, the details about the monkeys, jaguars and South American forests come alive on the pages of this book. The end of the book has some more interesting facts about howler monkeys and jaguars.
“The Three Little Howlers” is suitable for children from three-to-seven years old. It can either be read aloud to them or they can read the story themselves as the book’s text is simple and easy to read. Apart from being entertained with an engrossing story, the children are also introduced to South America, howler monkeys and jaguars. The bright and cheerful illustrations will keep their attention from wandering.
Language Lizard publishes bilingual books, multicultural books and dual-language audiobooks. This helps in promoting literacy and reading skills. “The Three Little Howlers” is available bi-lingually in Arabic and Spanish. Having the book in multiple languages increases the reach of the book. Children, who cannot read English, or are still learning to read English, can read the story in their native language. When children read (or hear) a story in their own language, then they can relate more to the story. This increases the interest of the children in reading, increasing their literacy proficiency.
“The Three Little Howlers” is the perfect read for the little ones, it not only entertains but also educates.

Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2022 (1/28/22) is in its 9th year! This non-profit children’s literacy initiative was founded by Valarie Budayr and Mia Wenjen; two diverse book-loving moms who saw a need to shine the spotlight on all of the multicultural books and authors on the market while also working to get those books into the hands of young readers and educators.
MCBD’s mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in homes and school bookshelves. Read about our Mission & History HERE.
