Overview

Mama’s out dancing, and Lulu, the babysitter, is in charge. The Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they convince Lulu there’s time for just one game of hide-and-seek first . . . and then another, and another . . . until they discover the ultimate hiding place. Lulu is frantic; where can those monkeys be?
Vibrant, expressive illustrations in Eileen Christelow’s signature style accompany a catchy rhymed text that’s great for reading aloud. The refrain invites children to join in; as Lulu counts to 10, 24, and finally 104, young listeners will count along with her. And what little monkey can resist the idea of mischief at bedtime?

The five little monkeys try to avoid going to bed by playing hide and seek with the babysitter.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This sixth book in Christelow's "Five Little Monkeys" series captures the silly antics of this wild, wacky group when their Mama goes out dancing and Lulu comes over to baby sit. After giving strict instructions to the monkeys, Mama leaves for the evening, and it should be a pretty easy night for Lulu as long as she puts the monkeys to bed at 8 P.M. sharp. As usual, however, things get crazy, as these monkeys play tricks on Lulu. Using hide-and-seek, the focus is really on counting as Lulu searches for the five little monkeys. The amusing illustrations also leave room for young readers to help look for the monkeys and to count along with Lulu. This lively book will be fun to read aloud with your child while leaving room for them to learn. What a great addition to any children's book collection. Check out the other "Five Little Monkeys" books by Christelow as well. 2004, Clarion Books, Ages 5 up.

PreS-K-Those naughty monkeys are back, and this time they're tormenting their baby-sitter. Mama's instructions are clear: "Lulu's the sitter./You'd better be good./No tricks! No silliness!/Is that understood?" They promise to behave and invite Lulu to be "it" for a game of hide-and-seek. She counts to 10 and quickly finds the little monkeys concealed in various spots around the living room. They beg for one more round, Lulu counts to 24, and her charges slip out into the yard, where she swiftly uncovers them. Finally, she counts to 124, and this time, Lulu can't locate them, and she's really worried. However, Mama peeks in the window as she comes home and sees them in the one place that never occurred to the baby-sitter-their own beds. The simple and colorful pen-and-ink and gouache artwork will be familiar to readers of Christelow's earlier books about these mischievous animals. The energetic illustrations work well with the overall mood of silliness. In addition to searching the pictures for the missing monkeys, children will enjoy the repetitive, rhyming nature of this story and will join in on the counting. A delightful choice for a group setting or for one-on-one sharing.-Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Highly recommended

    I first checked this book out from our local library. My kids age 3 and 6 absolutely LOVE this book. It's an excellent counting book. It has such a nice flow that my 3 year old has the words memorized. However, I can't say the same for all the books in the "Five Little Monkeys" series.
