Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
Christelow, Eileen (Author, Illustrator)

"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!" The nursery rhyme "Five Little Monkeys" has long been a favorite song and finger play with the preschool set, but Eileen Christelow gives it new life as a hilarious picture book. Her expressive pencil and watercolor illustrations capture both the glee and the pratfalls of those misbehaving monkeys. 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. This board-book edition is just the right size for small human hands. (IRA/CBC Children's Choice Award, 1990)


Naughty little monkeys jump on the bed, only to fall off one by one and bump their heads.
