The combination of humor and rhyme encourages young readers to learn to count as each monkey learns the risks of jumping on the bed,” said Michel Kripalani, Founder and President of Oceanhouse Media. “Author Eileen Christelow’s colorful illustrations of fun-loving monkeys naturally lend themselves to a playful digital version.”
Originally published in 1989, the Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed picture book takes the popular nursery rhyme and illustrates five precocious monkeys getting ready for bed. They take a bath, brush their teeth, put on their pajamas and bid mama goodnight.
However, it doesn’t end there — each funny monkey jumps off the bed and bumps his head, forcing mama to repeatedly call the doctor. As the popular nursery rhyme goes, the mama called the doctor and the doctor said, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”
