Youngsters can place 10 monkeys on the 3-D pop-up tree that springs up from the paper-over-board book Ten Little Monkeys: A Counting Storybook by Keith Faulkner, illus. by Jonathan Lambert. Starting with ""Ten little monkeys swinging on a vine"" they count down to ""One little monkey missing all his friends,"" removing monkeys as they go. Bright, bold brushtrokes convey the primates' comical mishaps, such as one monkey landing on a porcupine, along the way. ( Mar.)
