    1. Robert Beveridge on said:

      Eileen Christelow, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree (Clarion, 1991)Amusing, if lightweight, little book that undercuts its message in hopes of becoming a series. (It did, and an exceptionally popular one, at that.) A good one for reading to the kids if you like playing it up; this one would definitely be better sung than simply read. ***

    2. Jeremy on said:

      Strange that all through the book, the author made sure to show that the crocodile wasn't really eating the monkeys, and at the end, mother scolds them for teasing Mr. Crocodile . . . and then the final page has the monkeys feeding the crocodile cake.

    3. Natalie on said:

      Man do kids ever like it when those monkeys get snapped out of the tree. I like to "act this out" with a crocodile puppet and let five volunteers be the monkeys when sharing this with groups.

    4. Kaylie Zander on said:

      A cute addition to the "Five Little Monkeys" series but a bit violent for a young age. While you can still see all 5 monkeys in the tree throughout the story and you know they did not actually get eaten by the crocodile, it is hard to see them hidden with this choice of illustrations. The mischievous monkeys are known for not listening to what their mother says but it teaches children that in dangerous situations its alright to not listen to an adult. The book would be a great read aloud book be [...]

      Personally I don’t see the appeal of the Five Little Monkeys, I personally find every story repetitive and lacking in imagination. However, young readers love them. The sentences are simple enough that when they are learning to read they can put their skills to practice.In this little adventure, the monkeys are sitting in a tree teasing an alligator. Personally I was rooting for the alligator to eat those annoying little monkeys.Rating 3 out of 5 Read@Book

      My 4 year old loves this book! Wants to read it over and over again! So I've read it more than once ;-)Great book for counting and subtracting practice for toddlers.

      Many of us have all heard the little singsongy tale of the five little monkeys. This is Eileen Christelow's second most popular book in the Five Little Monkeys series. I loved that this book was full of humor and relatable problems that children go through. The five little monkeys tease a crocodile and there is a moral at the end of the story. This hilarious fable not only teaches kids from right and wrong, but Christelow's writing makes the book crafty and fun to read!After reading the book a c [...]

    10. Kimberlee Gutterman on said:

      This type of predictable book could be repetition or flowing language. An example of why it is repetition is because every time a monkey irritates the crocodile another one does the same thing. An example of the it is flowing language is because every time it says how many monkeys are left, it could almost be read as a chant. I believe this book could also contain familiar sequence because as it introduces the monkeys it says "five little monkeys" but every time one leaves it says "four little m [...]

      This book is fun, if perhaps a big suggestively violent. But the threat of violence looms large in the best children's stories ever written—Grimm's fairy tales, the English folk tale of Titty and Tatty Mouse, this German nurery rhyme about the barber that cuts off kids' fingers when they can't stop sucking their thumbs Children respond to hyperbole and drastic outcomes. And so with that in mind, we enjoy teasing Mr. Crocodile for the impending *SNAP!*But I feel like the Mama monkey goes to eas [...]

      This book counts down from five in a creative way. It sings about each monkey being snapped out of the tree one by one. The rhyming technique seems very beneficial to helping a child memorize 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. It will also keep the kids interested by seeing these misbehaving monkeys tempt the crocodile while their Mother is unaware. The illustration went hand and hand with the text. While each snap happened a small sight of a monkey appeared hidden behind the tree branches. This allows the chil [...]

      I grew up singing the “five little monkeys” songs and now sing it to children that I work with. Since I knew the songs and knew children loved singing a long with those I thought that the books would be just as good for children. Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree by Eileen Christelow is a great book to start teaching children how to count and also to teach them not to pick on others. The book is very colorful and the images really add to what is going on in the story. The colors are also [...]

      A spin off of the classic Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree is a fun counting book by Eileen Christelow. While I believe this book is not as fun and singable as the original, it is definitely different than most other counting books. The illustrations are simple and portrays the text extremely well. The "SNAP" of the crocodile coming after the little monkeys almost makes the crocodile come off the page towards the reader! Because this book only counts [...]

    15. Shanna Gonzalez on said:

      Christelow adds another rhythmic, repetitive troublemaking adventure as the Five Little Monkeys climb into a tree and tease a crocodile, while Mama trustfully naps by the bank. This book, like some others in the series, can be either read aloud or sung, and there's a finger play for this one too (unfortunately hard to do while you hold a book, but oh well). In Christelow's version, instead of having the alligator actually eat the monkeys, they leap into the tree branches, to be revealed in the e [...]

    16. Mariah Olson on said:

      I absolutely love this collection of books by Eileen Christelow about the 5 little monkeys because it's an easy book for preschool and kindergarten aged children to read and learn how to count number 1 through 5. This is also one of those books that kids can read in a 'jump rope' rhythm. What I mean by a 'jump rope' rhythm is that children read it to the rhythm of jumping, so a constant beat, and it helps the kids remember the words in the story and they count down from 5 to 1 by reading through [...]

      Five little monkeys sitting in a tree discover, one by one, that it is unwise to tease Mr. Crocodile.This book has extrodinary in its pictures. The colors of the book is almost like a watercolor paint. The brush strokes on the monkeys show which way their fur moves. Their movements are shown because of the paint stokes in their fur. Their is no title page and I think this is hard because it jumps right into the story and this takes away the importance of the book. The shapes of the monkeys are a [...]

      The colorful cover for 'Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree' made it look like it was going to be an exciting story. I feel like the climax of the story starts up too soon. We have all the sang the songs or read other books about monkeys jumping on the bed as well as doing many other things and this story did not add anything at all. Bright colors continued to be used throughout the story with the illustrations but, the story ended pretty abruptly just like it began. The monkeys went right to [...]

    19. Karla on said:

      This book clearly aims to teach young children just learning to count their numbers. I think the book does a good job with teaching the counting, but I was slightly disappointed with the moral. I felt that it was embarrassingly straightforward. Maybe for young children this is appropriate, but I still thought it could have had a more intelligent ending. This illustrations were fun and brightly colored. They were definitely in a style that would appeal to young children. My only concern with the [...]

      The five little monkeys series is such a fun series for students of all ages. Five little monkeys wait until their mother takes a nap and start to disturb Mr. Crocodile - oh what an unwise decision! This book teaches sequencing to students, story elements, and the moral of listening to adults. In my classroom, I would create an anchor chart for students to categorize the characters, problem, solution, theme, setting, and other story elements. I would also use this book to practice sequencing and [...]

    21. Ashley M. on said:

      This story is a fun book to use with young children that are trying to get more involved with reading. The reparative phrases and rhyming text will keep children following along. This book is a good tool to practice teaching children the flow of events in a story by counting down the monkeys. When using this story in the class room, have the children use their dramatic play skills to re act the story. This will help children practice the sequence of events in the book on an easy level. This can [...]

      Synopsis: "When the Five Little Monkeys go to the river for a picnic with Mama, they discover that it isn't very nice to tease Mr. Crocodile . . . it might even be dangerous! The follow-up to the bestselling classic Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, featuring Eileen Christelow's irrestistable monkey art in a sturdy board book, perfect for repeat readings!"My Review: One of Munchkin's favorite songs from circle time is Teasing Mr. Alligator. This book elaborates on that little song (though [...]

    23. Robin Morris on said:

      This book is a favorite book of mine. Children enjoy acting out teasing the crocodile and clapping their hands together as the crocodile goes "SNAP". It is repetitive which makes it easy to remember and easy for early readers to grasp the words. The book focuses on counting backwards and subtraction and then counting forward when all the monkeys appear in a tree. I like the way the mother monkey loves and disciplines her 5 monkeys with hugs and scolding. What a fun book!L.E.I would have a discus [...]

    24. Kaley on said:

      This is an interesting story that incorporates counting for young children. The book also incorporates rhyming, but it doesn't seem to be the main point. I remember reading a similar book as a small child about monkeys jumping on the bed and I loved it because the silly story, so I'm sure kids now would love this book as well. I would definitely read this to a lower level elementary class, most likely kindergarten. You could also show this book to preschoolers, as they typically are learning to [...]

      We picked this book up from our local library.Here we are again jumping into the adventures of the monkeys. When momma monkey decides to take them on a picnic dinner I don't think she planned on her monkeys teasing a crocodile. Don't these monkeys know that teasing a crocodile is not fun! They like to SNAP! We had a good time reading this book along with every time the crocodile would SNAP! We would yell it out, and then try to find the monkey afterwards. Perfect book for all ages. I think they [...]

      Five spunky little monkeys going to the park to have a picnic. Despite mothers wishes go playing in dangerous territory and almost get hurt.This book is wonderful for displaying what happens when we don't listen to adults. It has wonderful colours and illustrations that seem to come alive. The five little monkey's after going through all the drama get not only learn a lesson but a friend in the process. Children and adults of all ages can read this and spend hours laughing and playing along with [...]

      The book Five Little Monkeys Sitting in the Tree by Eileen Christelow is a tremendous book that could be used for counting. Although, the book only counts to 5 down to 0 back up to 5 this is different than a typical counting book. This book is fun and cute with the saying, "Five Little Monkey's sitting in a tree," but should probably be used for a little older group because of the "Snap" of the crocadile making the monkeys go missing. Also, this book would be good for an older group who is learn [...]
