Go on a great adventure with this fearless young explorer! Discover the many animals and terrains throughout the world with her - she still makes it home for supper, safe and sound! Children will love the rhymes, rhythm and repetition.
In Walking Through the Jungle, our pig-tailed adventurer doesn’t just walk through a jungle, and then get chased by a lion. Oh no, she manages to make her way around the world, from oceans and rivers to deserts and mountain tops, pursued by wild creatures from all over the planet.
Each brightly illustrated page depicts a multitude of flora and fauna unique to the environment, and young readers and parents will enjoy pointing out the various things to see. As the different beasts chase after our heroine, they roar and snap and hiss and growl, which also makes it fun to read aloud.
Although it might seem scary to be pursued by all these creatures, in the end, the animals and our little explorer are gathered around the dinner table for a feast, and on the last page are found piled together dreaming. This tale is about a story character making good use of her imagination, something all our children should be encouraged to do.
