Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed by Eileen Christelow - ADVISABLE

Christelow, Eileen  Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2011.  $7.99  BOARD BOOK  Content: G.  

Five little monkeys want their Mama to read another story to them before bed, but she tells them no and to go to sleep.  So the monkeys decide to read stories to each other.  They read a sad story, a ghost story and a joke book.  They are too loud when they are reading, so the mom has to get mad at them.  But when the monkeys go to check on their mother she is reading in her bed.  They tuck her in and everyone goes to sleep.  

This is a cute book about the love little ones have for reading.  It’s the same monkeys from Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and has the same story format.  The illustrations are cute and the story has 4-5 sentences per page spread.  

PREK-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
