In this eighth title in the wildly popular series, the Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they would rather keep reading their books!Mama raises an eyebrow. “What was it I said? Lights out! Sweet dreams! No more reading in bed!”After their mama reads to them, it’s bedtime for the Five Little Monkeys. But they can’t resist reading just one more book . . . or three! Soon Mama is so tired of trying to get her monkeys to quiet down and go to sleep, she picks up their books and takes them with her. At last, the monkeys are ready to settle down . . . until they hear strange sounds from down the hall. Could it be that Mama likes to read in bed, too? This playful addition to the Five Little Monkeys series returns to the familiar setting of Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and features a lively rhymed verse and catchy refrain that are sure to keep young readers chanting along. With a focus on reading for fun and the idea of books as part of a bedtime routine, Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed packs in plenty of mischievous monkey business, and there’s even a comical surprise twist at the end.
