Reading Enjoyment – 8
I pretty much enjoyed browsing through some of the posts in Cheekie Monkies. They are full of visual complements and you just can’t go wrong with children having fun! However, I do not think that anyone who does not know the children and their family all that much would enjoy coming back on a regular and frequent basis.
Useful Info – 8
Cheekie Monkies does not offer much by way of practical information as it mostly documents the experiences of Ashton and Ayden. Still, there posts wherein you can gather some information on places and activities that your own children might find interesting.
