Good vivid pictures and elements of definate suprise. As you watch the monkeys eager to help and making a mess they get distracted making a cake that is a mess. They love their mama and they make her breakfast on the wrong day making the book just a hoot. Monkeys are messy making this book really relate to kids. Grades 1-6

This is a fun book because it is a poem that many young children know. To see it in print is a real connection for those kids.

My two year old daughter got this book for a gift and she loves this book so much! We read it every night at least two or three times, she evens reads along with me. She knows when to say 'shhh' and laughs at the funny stuff they do in the story. I plan on buying more monkey books!

My kids loved '5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed', so I figured this one would be good too. This was such a waste of money. The story did not rhyme like the 'jumping on the bed' on did, and was so boring to read. The story line was basically non existent, the story didn't flow, rhyme, or hold my kids interest past the first couple of pages. Some books are better left alone with no sequal to them, and I think 'jumping on the bed' is one of those books. Please don't write any more to this series!
