Born in Washington, D.C., Eileen Christelow went to school there and in Connecticut, Tokyo, and Massachusetts. When she decided to write and illustrate picture books for young children, she and her daughter, Heather, "researched the problem together, taking weekly trips to the library and reading at bedtime and nap time." Eileen Christelow and her husband, potter Ahren Ahrenholz, now live in Dummerston, Vermont.From School Library Journal :
PreSchool-Grade 1-- In a brief prelude to the title rhyme, five little monkeys ready themselves for bed, and say goodnight to their mother. Then, really getting down to business, they launch into some serious bed-jumping. Young children familiar with this popular finger play will appreciate Christelow's incorrigible monkeys, jumping with abandon, oblivious to the repeated warning: "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!" Newcomers will find the rhyme a delightful discovery which begs to be repeated. With each successive casualty, mother monkey dutifully consults the doctor, and bandages the wounds. Finally, all five battle-weary monkey children are asleep, and mother can go to bed. Colored pencil drawings in soft pastels depict the totally silly but lovable monkey family and its doctor. This is a natural for younger story hours, and can also be used with beginning readers. Whether sublimely happy or ridiculously goofy, Christelow's expressive monkeys pack a lot of appeal. --Corinne Camarata, Port Washington Public Library, N.Y.
