Synopses & Reviews
It takes special art and a special story to match the spirited energy of a rain forest. And if the book is for young children, then it needs an extra boost! After all, this is where ocelots pounce, marmosets swing, poison dart frogs hop and boa constrictors squeeze! Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme is wonderfully successful at rising to the challenge by combining music, counting, and vivid clay artwork to present some of the most compelling animals of the tropical rain forest. Adapted to the whimsical classic song, Over in the Meadow, children will sing, count, and delight in this remarkable habitat. Simultaneous.
Youngsters can sing, clap, and count their way among enchanting rainforest animals to the rhythm of the whimsical favorite, "Over in the Meadow." This rainforest is teeming with monkeys that hoot, ocelots that pounce, parrots that squawk, and boas that squeeze. It won't take much to have children joyfully hooting and squawking too. The illustrations--done in polymer clay--vividly convey the abundant energy of a rainforest. Full color.
