Book Review

No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed is  a fun story . Based on the popular song by the same title, this book is sure to bring about laughs with the little ones. Starting out at bed time, we watch as the monkeys get ready for bed. But they aren't sleepy. Before we know it, they are jumping on the bed instead of sleeping in the bed. One by one, the monkeys fall off the bed and are ordered by the doctor, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!"

As a teacher in an Infant Room at a child care center, I recomend this book. Right from the beginning, my infants and young toddlers were captivated by the story. They participated, echoed, and laughed all through the book. No matter how many times we read this at Circle Time, the children leave the story full of chuckles.

This is a great book packed with fun. Look for it on or your local bookstore.
