Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed by Eileen Christelow

After their mama reads to them, it's bedtime for the Five Little Monkeys. But they can't resist reading just one more book...or three! Soon Mama is so tired of trying to get her monkeys to quiet down and go to sleep, she picks up their books and takes them with her. At last, the monkeys are ready to settle down...until they hear strange sounds from down the hall. Could it be that Mama likes to read in bed too? This playful addition to the Five Little Monkeys series features a lively rhymed verse and catchy refrain that's sure to keep young readers chanting along.


Reading promotion at its best, with a little bit of bad behavior to spice things up. Kirkus

They [children] will continue to be delighted, as this time the monkeys turn the tables on their mother at the conclusion of the tale. School Library Journal The interactive text is fun for reading aloud, and the digital line-and-wash illustrations perfectly capture the little monkeys zany glee. Booklist
