    " It doesn't get better than this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 2/1/2014

    " This story (and associated song) is a favorite around here. We read it, sing it, watch it on YouTube, and change the lyrics all the time so that just about anything can be jumping on the bed. That's how we roll. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori Smith | 1/31/2014

    " This is a classic story that is so catchy, almost anyone who reads it will have it memorized by the time they reach the last page. This is a great book to use with young learners to help them understand addition, subtraction and counting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 1/24/2014

    " To this day I am scared to jump on the bed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 1/21/2014

    " This is a cute, funny and predictable picture book. This is a book that I remember from my childhood as the rhyme of the text has stood with me over the years. The book depicts the the consequences of misbehaving that can be used as a teaching moment. However, it doesn't set the best example as it ends with the mother jumping on the bed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Asheley Frazier | 1/20/2014

    " This book is good for 2nd, 3rd or 4th grade. It's good to help teach students how to fluently subtract using mental strategies. As the book is being read, monkeys leave the bed one at a time. Children can begin to think about how many monkeys they have in the bed and how many are remaining once one leaves. It is amazing because it works with the number 5 which becomes ten when doubled. Why is that important? Since our counting system is based on groups of ten, it is introducing children to groups of ten. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek Litzau | 1/2/2014

    " I remember reading this book as a young child. It was always so funny at the end. Love it. Recommeded for ages 1-3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa Bashore | 12/14/2013

    " A cute song for every child to learn and sign as they grow up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred | 12/7/2013

    " A classic. I forgot how awesome this book was until my daughter was given a copy by my mom. We both love it and she loves the little monkey finger puppets that came with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Brandstetter | 11/30/2013

    " EL Skills - Print motivation, print awareness, phonological awareness. Activities - Read, talk, & play. This one does make it difficult to fight the desire to jump on the bed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace Potter | 10/4/2013

    " My favorite book when I was an infant!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dearborn Public Library Youth Services | 9/19/2013

    " This is a very familyiar rhyme for children. Christlow's monkeys are very cute and the twist at the end has kids laughing. I would use this as a read-aloud for PreK and K, possibly for 1st grade. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jillian Reed | 7/17/2013

    " This classical bedtime story is told once again. The same defiant five little monkeys who just can't seem to quit jumping on the bed till they bump their heads. Cute for kindergartens! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 7/10/2013

    " A cute telling of a classic children's nursery rhyme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Wright | 1/14/2013

    " Repeating the same phrase over and over again, but changing the numbers allows children to have repetition. Children can better remember context when it is fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 10/16/2012

    " Classic song put into book form. My kids enjoy this song/story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie | 9/5/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn Kennedy | 4/24/2012

    " I never knew that I was singing a story the whole time. A good book to get kids to have a little rhyme and sing to. It also shows how parents don't always practice what they preach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/20/2011

    " This is a cute book that could be used with the younger grades to examine rhyming and subtraction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerri | 4/26/2011

    " My son came home from school one day and starting humming a song and I realized he had learned 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed at school. I bought this book, since he liked it so much. It's nice, short, fun, and to the point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 4/20/2011

    " This book could be great for a hook with a lesson about subtraction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 4/17/2011

    " Nice book...goes with the infamous nursery rhyme! (Repetition-earlier elementary grades) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 4/10/2011

    " Many children will be familiar with the song of the five little monkeys and this book adds pictures to go along with it. Even if children aren't familiar with it they will soon be able to say it along with the reader because it's very repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilou U | 4/3/2011

    " What child doesn't want to read a story about monkeys finding mischief? When I taught first grade, I gave each of my students a copy of their own! "
