Christelow's colored pencil illustrations are light and playful and help to bring the text to life.

Each monkey has great facial expressions and they never distract from the story being told. This is a very cute, sing-song kind of book, one of a series of "Five Little Monkeys". It's funny, because I remember the counting song we used to sing in high school, "There were five in the bed and the little one said, 'Roll over, roll over. Please remember, to tie a knot in your pyjamas. Single beds are only made for four in the bed and the little one said This isn't the same song, obviously. It This is a very cute, sing-song kind of book, one of a series of "Five Little Monkeys".
It starts out with a bedtime routine bath, pyjamas, brushing teeth, saying goodnight to Mama , then they all jump on the bed, one falls out and bumps his head. The mama calls the doctor and the doctor says, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!
I love the illustrations too, they're more detailed than what's on the cover. You can have some fun with this one, and I wouldn't mind getting some of the other Five Little Monkeys books, too.

This particular retelling loses a lot of that fun, interrupting the flow of the sing-song for interjected comments from Momma. I imagine this could have been done well but in this case it cause a lot of stumbling when the book was read aloud. It's not a terrible book but it's not the version of the sing-song that I would opt to read aloud, given a few options.

Mar 01, Erica added it Shelves: Text-to-Teaching I would use this book for a teaching book. I would say that I would use this book for teaching because it can be used to help the students count to the number 5.
I think that this book would also teach the children how to follow directions. I would have an activity where we would have five students acting out the book. But it would almost be like duck duck goose. I think that the children would love that.

But, Mama tells them not to. It's time to go to sleep. This is one of my favorites. I use it in my toddler room all the time. It's a favorite for the kids. Librarians, parents, preschoolers and teachers. A regular go to book for monkey and sick story times. Then everyone sings the song afterwards.
The classic song in picture book format with a surprise twist at the end. Got another guffaw from a caregiver at the ending. Hopefully, we didn't disturb the whole library. View all 7 comments. Oct 15, Clare rated it really liked it.
Kid reviews for Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed: A Five Little Monkeys Story
The book is about five little monkeys jumping on the bed; one by one they fall off and bump their heads. The book uses humour, repetition and rhyme to engage the reader. The simplicity and repetition makes this a fantastic book for early mathematics learners as well as a possible starting point for poem writing and learning how to use rhyme. The animation supports the literature making it an appropriate book for EAL. At first this one elicited from my toddler a resounding "no" accompanied by a vigorous head shake and a forced closure of the book mid sentence, but after a few tries, it's become a new favorite.
Depending on his mood, he will sometimes act out the books "no"'s with a head shake and finger wag and reach for his head or mine or my husband's when the monkeys bump their head. Such a fun book for us right now! Nov 01, Teressa rated it really liked it Shelves: I've sung the song to my daughter but it didn't really hold her attention maybe it's because my singing voice leaves much to be desired but she was fascinated by this book and the illustrations are very well done.

Both sleeping arrangements and lack of accident prevention are questionable and will probably raise some eyebrows over at Child Protective Services. Doctor's advice though is pretty consistent, which teaches the value of high-quality healthcare. I liked this book. It teaches young children to count up to five and backwards. There is also a song for this story and children love to sing and dance. I think children will enjoy reading the book. It has nice pictures and the repetition in the book will help them learn their numbers.
