Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed (Five Little Monkeys)


Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed (Five Little Monkeys) Cover




The five little monkeys and Mama are eager to get a new car. The five little monkeys clean and paint their old car until it sparkles like new. But who will buy it? Perhaps those clever monkeys can convince their cranky crocodile neighbors that what they really need is . . . yes, a car! Children will love predicting how the five little monkeys will deal with each new challenge, making this a perfect story for interactive reading. Lively verse and Eileen Christelow's inimitably comic illustrations put the five little monkeys in the driver's seat in more ways than one.
"Christelow's watercolor and pencil illustrations show great energy and movement, peppered with just the right amount of silliness." Booklist, ALA
Eileen Christelow has created numerous fun and funny picture books, including the Five Little Monkeys series, Author, and most recently, Letters from a Desperate Dog. She and her husband, Ahren, live in Vermont. For more information visit www.christelow.com.

Using a towns mayoral election as a model, this lively introduction to voting covers every step in the process, from the start of the campaign all the way to the voting booth. Theres even a recount! The cast of characters includes two dogs (and a cat), whose questions and comments mirror those of young readers and help to explain some of an elections more confusing aspects. Told with clarity and wit in Eileen Christelows signature comic-book style and vetted by an expert in voter education, this look at how we choose our leaders turns an often daunting topic into an exciting narrative. Who would have guessed that learning about voting could be so much fun?

A timeline of the history of voting in the United States, a glossary of words associated with voting, a discussion of American political parties, and a list of Internet resources are included.

The Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they convince Lulu theres time for just one game of hide-and-seek first . . . and then another, and another . . . until they discover the ultimate hiding place. Lulu is frantic; where can those monkeys be?

Vibrant, expressive illustrations in Eileen Christelows signature style accompany a catchy rhymed text thats great for reading aloud. The refrain invites children to join in; as Lulu counts to 10, 24, and finally 104, young listeners will count along with her. And what little monkey can resist the idea of mischief at bedtime?
