Five Little Monkeys Shopping for School (A Five Little Monkeys Story) (Paperback)
The best-selling Five Little Monkeys are getting into trouble yet again - this time while back-to-school shopping in the latest board book addition to the enormously popular series with more than 8 million books sold.
The day before school starts, Mama takes her five little monkeys shopping for new clothes. "Stay right here," she says, "AND DON'T GO WANDERING OFF!" But one little monkey has to go to the bathroom . . . and two little monkeys get thirsty. . . . Then three little monkey friends arrive . . . and four little monkeys decide to go help find the others. . . . Will Mama ever get all of her monkeys ready for school? Like with the other books in the FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS series, kids will love reciting the repetitive phrases, counting the characters, and predicting what will happen next.
Eileen Christelow has written and illustrated numerous best-selling picture books including eleven popular stories about the Five Little Monkeys, Vote!, and Robins!: How They Grow Up. She lives with her husband in East Dummerston, Vermont.
Kids will love the slapstick plot and energetic, expressive characters, and surprising conclusion, and teachers will appreciate the seamless integration of math skills from counting to addition and subraction.
