Five little monkeys wake up with the sun. Today is their mama's birthday and they are going to bake a cake for her. They'll have to measure the flour and mix in the right number of eggs, and get it all into the oven in time for the birthday surprise--without waking up Mama! Eileen Christelow has created an original, high-energy romp, sure to delight any child who has tried to plan a surprise.
The day before school starts, Mama takes her five little monkeys shopping for clothes. "Stay right there," she says, "AND DON'T GO WANDERING OFF!" But do those silly little monkeys listen to Mama? Of course not! Soon there are only three little monkeys ... and then there are seven ... then three again ... and then ... oh, no! Fourteen little monkeys! How can that be? Will Mama ever have her five little monkeys together again?
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!" The nursery rhyme "Five Little Monkeys" has long been a favorite song and finger play with the preschool set, but Eileen Christelow gives it new life as a hilarious picture book. Her expressive pencil and watercolor illustrations capture both the glee and the pratfalls of those misbehaving monkeys. 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. This board-book edition is just the right size for small human hands. (IRA/CBC Children's Choice Award, 1990)

Mama's out dancing, and Lulu, the babysitter, is in charge. The Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they convince Lulu there's 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 Christelow's signature style accompany a catchy rhymed text that's 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?
While their mother takes a nap, five mischievous monkeys discover that it is unwise to tease Mr. Crocodile.
