Five Little Monkeys play hide-and-seek review

Five Little Monkeys Play Hide-and-Seek (Five Little Monkeys Picture Books)

Mama’s out dancing, and Lulu, the babysitter, is in charge. The Five Little Monkeys are supposed to go to bed, but they convince Lulu there’s time for just one game of hide-and-seek first . . . and then another, and another . . . until they discover the ultimate hiding place. Lulu is frantic; where can those monkeys be? (goodreads summary)

Here is a great addition to any reading library. If you are a fan of the classic Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, you are sure to enjoy this charming and witty book.  Bright colorful pictures with repetition and rhyme makes for a great read-aloud.  Once again, the little monkeys are into mischief at bedtime and children will laugh at the silliness. The book also focuses on counting and the page illustrations display numbers, all the way up to 104 , which will help little ones with counting skills as well.  This will definitely be one of those books that will be a reading favorite over-and-over again. I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~
