Five Little Monkeys 5-Minute Stories by Eileen Christelow - OPTIONAL

Christelow, Eileen Five Little Monkeys 5-Minute Stories, 253 pages.  PICTURE BOOK  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018. $13. 9781328453594  

This is a collection of eight books about five little monkeys and their antics.  The books included in this single volume include: Five Little Monkeys… Jumping on the Bed, Sitting in the Tree, Bake a Birthday Cake, With Nothing to Do, Wash the Car, Play Hide-and-Seek, Jump in the Bath and Reading in Bed.  The monkeys are adorable and their mom patient and kind.  

Each page spread has 2-3 short sentences and colorful illustrations.  My kids loved these books growing up, so it’s nice to have them all in one collection but at the same time the size of the book is a bit big for little hands.  So these books are advisable as far as the stories in them, but the actual book collection is not ideal for little readers.
