In this book, five monkeys are jumping on a bed, even though their mom tells them not to. One by one they all fall off and break their heads, and learn the hard way that they should be obeying what their mother had told them to do originally, and just going to sleep.

The book “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” starts out with five monkeys getting ready for bed. After they say goodnight to their mother, they start jumping on the bed. Consecutively, they fall off and mother calls the doctor. After all five of them have fallen off and the mother called the doctor five times, to which each time he said “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”, they all fell fast asleep in their bed, giving mama time to jump on her own bed. This is a silly book, but I think it is a good read to show kids that they can have a little fun but if they do stuff that they are not supposed to do they could get hurt.

The monkeys climb into the bed and say goodnight. But are they really going to go to sleep? As soon as momma leaves the room they monkeys find some trouble! They start jumping on the bed! And guess what happens next? One by one they monkeys fall off the bed and get hurt. What does momma do? She calls the doctor and the doctor told them to stop jumping on the bed! This books teaches children if you do not listen to the rules consequences occur. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395900239, Board book)

“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)
