This eBook "Five Little Monkeys" was difficult reading. Words and pictures did not match. Grainy illustrations. Sorry I made this purchase. I enjoyed this book with my children and thought it would be equally wonderful on my NOOK, reading to my grandchildren. Again what a mistake. Can I return this book and receive a refund or NOOK credit towards another purchase?????? Didn't think so.

This is a poor quality ebook! The images are too small and they had to type in the words. It seems to be just a scan of the book and not one that was created to be an ebook. I wish I could get my money back. I wanted to view this book for a children's' library class and wasted my money. money I could not afford to waste. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS NOOK BOOK!

Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed by Eileen Christelow They have to take a bath because it was bed time. They were jumping on the bed and one fell off. The mama said now I can go to bed after she put them all to bed with booboos on their heads. I like this book because it is funny. They were happy, silly, and funny. I would give this to the kids in my class. Trinity D. 9-22-11

My 3yr old loves this books!!!! He loves the part when the the doctor said "No more monkeys jumping on the bed". I love the way the author repeats the same scenario, it helps my son to do the countdown of the monkeys one by one as they fall off the bed. In the back is nice little treat with lots of stickers!

Nook version of this adorable book is a confusing mess. Lots of the pages don't fit on the screen. When they do, the words wrap to an otherwise blank grey page. Didn't even bother to try to read it to my favorite 2-year-old from my Samsung Nook S2. Waste of money.

Great rhyming story/song of a Mother getting increasingly frustrated as her little monkeys jump on the bed and fall off and hit their head.

This is a classic. It is a cute sing along book, and kids love that. it also could help with subtraction. this would be good for K-2ND grade.

This is a cute story with an important message, don't jump on the bed. This can also be used for math because it counts down from five till three are no more little monkeys. This could also be used for interactive writing because of the repeating sentences, and similar sentences.

Summary: five little monkeys jump on the bed, and one after another they fall off the bed. After their mother repeatedly tell them not to jump (according to doctors orders) the monkeys continue to jump on the bed after every one get hurt they all go to bed and then mamma starts jumping on the bed personal reaction: I like this book for toddlers because it is very simple, with good repeatable words that were easy for little ones to catch on to. classroom extension:1. I can have the students sing the book as a song and hold finger in the air as we count down monkeys2. I can talk to the student about the importance of listening to their parents I can teach the cause an effect through this story 3. I can teach the children to count through this book by adding monkeys ex 10 little monkeys...

So far I like this book more than my kids (14 months). I really enjoy the pictures and think it's a fun rhyme that I was already familiar with. The kiddos aren't as engaged in it as they are with other books, I'm not sure why. But I think it will grow on them.

This story is about a family who happen to be monkeys. Mama has a bedtime routine in place that begins with taking baths, putting on pajamas, and even brushing their teeth just as most human children do. Once the monkeys have been put to bed and mama leaves the room, they take advantage and start jumping on the bed. One by one, they eventually get hurt. I remember this story as a song that I sang in Kindergarten. At the time, I did not think of it as a counting song. I was living through the monkeys jumping on the bed since my brothers and I were never allowed to jump on the beds!As a classroom extension I would teach the students the song that I knew growing up and we would start counting at 10 little monkeys instead of 5. Another idea would be to have the students make a storyboard of their bedtime routine at home. They would draw a picture then put a caption underneath to tell us what was happening.
