Anyway, kids have a great sense of humor, and they will enjoy it when you chuckle while reading this book to them. The little monkeys of the title are five clumsy but well-intentioned, lovable creatures that mess up the house while trying to please their mom. That is probably what happens to many two or three-year-olds who hope to do the right thing and end up spilling the milk when they try to assist mom. Enthusiasm combined with clumsiness can produce some rather chaotic results. "Five Little Monkeys with Nothing to Do" teaches parents and kids to see the funny side in such mishaps.
Recommended for parents and children alike.
Out they go to meet Grandmas Bessie who is so looking forward to seeing the clean house! Uh Oh! Who could have made all that mess?
Ever happen in your house? It does in ours! Kids easily relate to this story as it is SO realistic!
Yet here we are again with another funny monkey book. I really liked this one as it gave me ideas to use to get my son to do some chores. Being a parent I hear the "I have nothing to do" a lot especially during the summer when he is use to school. So reading this book I was like hmmm gonna have to try something like this the next time I hear those words. All the hard work the monkeys do only to end up back where they were at the beginning I can see why momma monkey needs help! Messy little monkeys. K's favorite part was the ending where all their hard work was a disaster.
A repetitive book that is a great read for all and the illustrations are awesome.
Third entry in Christelow's wildly successful series has the Monkey family getting ready for Grandma Bessie's arrival. Each time the FLM say they're bored, mama gives them something else to do to get ready for Bessie's arrival. All well and good, until mama puts one request in just the wrong order... another entry where Christelow abandoned the rhyme scheme of the other books, which does each a service when it happens. Another fun entry in the series. *** ½
I have a degree in English and happen to be a very big advocate for reading to infants. I now most people will not read Shakespeare, Poe, Keller or Rowling like I do, but I also love reading her children’s books.
I have all the Monkey books for Azalea and she loves them. I find the pictures keep her interest as I read. She is always going for the Monkey books when she wants to be read to.
