and#8220;NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!and#8221; A sure-fire hit at story hour, this rhythmic romp is a counting lesson, too, as the five bouncy bed-jumpers bump their heads and get hauled off to the doctor one by one. Wonderful pencil and watercolor illustrations capture both the glee and the pratfalls of those misbehaving monkeys. (IRA/CBC Childrenand#8217;s Choice)
Since its publication more than twenty years ago, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed has become a true childrenand#8217;s classic, selling millions of copies. This improved board book edition features all the art from the original hardcover edition at a new larger size.
