Monkeys keep jumping on the bed and hitting their heads.

Repetitive. At the end (in the illustrations, not the text) the mom herself jumps on the bed! Not a great cautionary tale. ( )

One,Two,Three,Four,Five little monkeys! Jump up and down with joy as they all start to slowly fall asleep one by one.

This retelling of the nursery rhyme “5 little monkeys jumping on the bed” was made into a book where the 5 mischievous monkeys jump on the bed at home. One by one each of the monkeys fall off the bed after their mama told them no more jumping on the bed. I have some of the best memories in elementary school with this book. It was a class favorite and it always connected us together. So many memories of my classmates and I gathering at the carpet, ready to read. We all participated and love singing this song as it was read aloud to us. It kept us all engaged and we never seemed to get tired of it. This book has a special place in my heart and I hope to show this to students someday.
