Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow


Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow

As soon as they say good night to Mama, the five little monkeys begin to jump on their bed. But despite Mama's warnings, they fall off and hurt themselves. A sure-fire hit at story hour, this rhythmic romp is a counting lesson, too, as the five bouncy bed-jumpers bump their heads and get hauled off to the doctor one by one. Wonderful pencil and watercolour illustrations capture both the glee and the pratfalls of those misbehaving monkeys.


Whether sublimely happy or ridiculously goofy, Christelow's expressive monkeys pack a lot of appeal. School Library Journal, Starred
