Sam is not ready to go to bed. He would much rather stay up and play with his monkey friends than snuggle down to sleep. But when he finally is ready to settle down, the monkeys won’t let up on him. He tries to remember and use the advice that his Mama gave him to help him calm everyone down so that they can rest.
If you are ready for naptime or bedtime and are surrounded by restless little monkeys, then you need this book to help you get everyone under control! Sam’s Mama has good words of wisdom - and who doesn’t like a good monkey story!
