Five Little Monkeys

"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

I don't think there is anyone on the planet who hasn't heard the classic children's rhyme "Five Little Monkeys."  Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow brings the bedtime antics of the crazy little monkeys to life.  As the book begins, five little monkeys go about their bedtime routine, taking a bath, putting on pajamas, brushing their teeth.  Mama tucks them into bed, but as soon as she closes the door the fun really begins.  The five little monkeys have a blast jumping on the bed, but one by one each little monkey falls off and bumps his head.  Each time Mama calls the doctor and the doctor says, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"  Colorful sketches illustrate the little monkeys' tale.  Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed is just one book in an entire treasury of monkey adventures by Eileen Christelow, so if your little one loves this book, he will surely love to follow along as the five little monkeys wash a car, play hide and seek, and bake a birthday cake.  The fun goes on and on!
