Reviewed by Brooke James (age 4.5) and Jen James (mom) for Reader Views (12/08)

“Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme” is a colorful rhyming book that teaches children numbers 1-10 while also teaching them about animals from the rainforest.  The rhyme is the same rhythm as “Over in the Meadow.”

Brooke says, “I like it.  I like the mommy animals.  I like the rhymes.  I loved the finding animals’ page!”

Parent’s comments:
Brooke really enjoyed “Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme” by Marianne Berkes.  The rhymes were fun as well as educational.  The pictures were beautiful.  Her favorite page was the hide-and-seek page with all of the rainforest animals from the book located on one page and you have to find them.  After I read it to her the first time, she read it many times by herself.
