Five Little Monkeys with Nothing to Doby Eileen Christelow
Synopses & Reviews
When five little monkeys ask for something to do, cleaning the house for Grandma Bessie's visit isn't exactly what they had in mind. But leave it to these mischievous monkeys to find a way to make housework fun...and messy!
Here is another popular Five Little Monkeys story, available for the first time in a bilingual board book edition. Now Spanish- and English-speaking readers can enjoy the lighthearted antics of these lovable monkeys while learning the words of the familiar tale in both languages.
It's summer, school is out, and the five little monkeys are bored. "There is nothing to do!" they tell Mama. "Oh yes, there is," says Mama. "Grandma Bessie is coming for lunch, and the house must be neat and clean." Well-meaning as ever, the five little monkeys clean their room and go on to sweep the floors, scrub the bathroom, and pick berries for dessert. But then . . . Children will welcome the return of the five little monkeys, who make the same kinds of messes they do.
With nothing to do, the five little monkeys make the household chores a fun--and messy--adventure in this sturdy board book edition.
