Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

by Eileen Christelow Illustrated by Eileen Christelow

These naughty fellows (with adorable, expressive faces) refuse to listen to their mother's advice and one by one fall off the bed and bump their heads, requiring a doctor's visit each time and lots of bandages. Eventually, of course, even little monkeys have to fall asleep.

The repeating phrases encourage reading along and word recognition, and the entire rhyme helps children practice counting backwards from five to one.

Praise for Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
