Five Little Monkeys Go Shopping by Eileen Christelow

The day before school starts, Mama takes her five little monkeys shopping for 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 have all five of her little monkeys together again?

In this latest romp with Eileen Christelow’s Five Little Monkeys, vibrant, expressive illustrations accompany a catchy text that’s great for reading aloud. Simple math lessons are seamlessly incorporated into the fun.

In addition to this installment of the Five Little Monkeys series Eileen Christelow has written numerous other versions including, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed, Five Little Monkeys Bake a Cake, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, Five Little Monkeys with Nothing to Do, Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car, Five Little Monkeys Play Hide-and-Seek, Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed and coming in October 2012 Five Little Monkeys Jump In The Bath. Most of the series can be found in picture book form as well as in a board book style as well. Eileen Christelow is also the author of a host of other picture books that can be found on her website.

    What Teresa (above) wrote was my thought exactly when I saw this was your pick for today! We especially love the “bake a cake” and “wash the car” ones.
