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.
Eileen Christelow has written and illustrated numerous best-selling picture books including ten popular stories about the Five Little Monkeys, Vote!, and Robins!: How They Grow Up . She lives with her husband in East Dummerston, Vermont. Visit her online at and

Editorial Reviews

Reading promotion at its best, with a little bit of bad behavior to spice things up." - Kirkus "They [children] will continue to be delighted, as this time the monkeys turn the tables on their mother at the conclusion of the tale."- School Library Journal "The interactive text is fun for reading aloud, and the digital line-and-wash illustrations perfectly capture the little monkeys' zany glee."- Booklist "
