Get this book from the library 

This familiar and exuberant counting rhyme shows five little monkeys getting ready for bed--and who get sidetracked by some serious bed-jumping.

Leasia says, “It's a good story.”

It’s about five little monkeys. They get ready to go to bed and each time one monkey falls down, the mother calls the doctor and then the mother says, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” And then after five it goes four. And then they jump on the bed and one falls down and then it goes over and over again. And then when all the monkeys are done all the monkeys go back to bed and now they’re never gonna get hurt. And now the mother’s gonna jump on the bed!
