Five little monkeys are bored, but their mother has them clean up the house for Aunt Bessie's visit.
"When five bored little monkeys complain of nothing to do, their mother gladly enlists their help in getting ready for Grandma's visit. In a great scurry, they clean their room, scrub the bathroom, beat the rug, and pick berries for dessert. Unfortunately, when they turn to readying themselves, they undo all their good work and mess and muddy the entire house. Wordless pictures show them cleaning again. . . . This book can be enjoyed one-on-one or at story hour, and all who read it will gain more appreciation for whoever does the cleaning at home."
