FIVE LITTLE MONSTERS JUMPING ON THE BED is an adorable board book that changes up the classic song just a bit. The book begins with five little monsters jumping on the bed, until one falls off and bumps its head. Larry calls the doctor - and we all know what the doctor says. It then counts down until no monsters are jumping on the bed, and they all play on the floor instead!

This board book has a slight twist in that children are instructed to perform an action to help the monsters feel better. For instance, they are instructed to pat the monster's head for one and to press on the bandage to help it stick on another. These added actions give some interactive fun for little ones.

This book is simple and absolutely delightful. The rhythm of the song is fun for infants and toddlers, and the use of the counting down helps to teach numbers and basic subtraction. The monsters are all adorable, and children will love the bright colors and the interactive nature of the text as they can help the monsters feel better with simple actions. This is an all-around delight.

Highly recommend picking up this board book for infants and toddlers. With some learning, interactive, and lyrical elements, this one is a definite win!
