Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

"Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" by Eileen Christelow

This classic nursery rhyme has been made famous because of the books by Eileen Christelow.

Five little monkeys don't want to go to bed. To make matters worse, they start jumping on the bed. Every parent knows that is a recipe for danger, especially when five monkeys are doing it at the same time!

The monkey's mama has to call the doctor when the monkeys start falling off of the bed. The monkeys don't listen to their mama and eventually they all fall off the bed! Finally the mama gets all five monkeys to bed.

Eileen Christelow has written seven additional books about these monkeys: Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed, Five Little Monkeys Bake a Birthday Cake; Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree; Five Little Monkeys with Nothing To Do; Five Little Monkeys Play Hide-and-Seek; Five Little Monkeys Go Shopping; and Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car.
