In the Jungle
by Kingfisher Books
Beautiful clear photographs of cute baby animals introduce toddlers to creatures that inhabit the jungle. The book features an orangutan, frogs, tapir, gorilla, elephant, tiger and lemur (is that a jungle animal?) There\’s a little description telling something about each animal and a feature of its behavior: the tapir\’s spots help it hide in the foliage, a lemur likes to sunbathe, elephants cool off in the mud, etc. The text has some fun variations going on, with letters bending, changing shape and doing other irregular things to help emphasize the action or characteristic described. It\’s quite fun, very attractive and a bit educational all at the same time.
