Five Little Monkeys Reading In Bed by Eileen Christelow
Those ornery 5 little monkeys are back....and I love this one!! As you can probably guess, the 5 little monkeys do NOT want to go to bed but would prefer to read books! Sad books, happy books, scary books, they do not care as they try to read books despite Mama's pleading. Each time Mama leaves, the little monkeys sneak a book that they just have to read. Soon the giggling, sobs, wailing, etc wakes Mama and she is in their room.
"What's all this racket? This chaos? This din?"
Mama is not happy.
"I've had it! That's it! DId you hear what I said?.....Lights out! Sweet dreams! No more reading in bed!"
As always, the kids will love the silliness of the monkeys!
