Now baby girl is 8 months old she is really getting into her books. We love to have a few minutes reading and looking through books. As you know I’m a huge book lover and I want her to have a similar love of books.
We were sent a lovely bright and colourful book called Jungle Jam to review. I’m also running a giveaway for your own chance to win a copy at the end of the post.
Jungle Jam is a bright, colourful, educational and fun book designed for 0-4 year olds, It’s about a singing monkey who embarks on a musical adventure to find global fame, but discovers that he must work with others to make his dream turn into a reality.
On his journey, Mikey the Monkey meets Larry the Lion, Ella the Elephant, Ziggy the Zebra and Gina the Giraffe, each of whom play a musical instrument they teach him about, and then invite him to sing with them. Each time he declines and continues on his journey to find fame. Finally he hears an incredible sound and sees all of the animals playing their instruments together and realises that when people work together, dreams can come true. So he takes the plunge, sings with the band and becomes a jungle success.
I loved reading Jungle Jam to my 8 month old. She obviously doesn’t understand what’s going on but she was fascinated with the bright colours. She also tried to have a chew! But that’s what all teething babies do.
I love that all the words make up rhymes and that the most important words are in yellow – different to the other words.
The text is easy to read to very young children, and the images are bold and clear. I enjoyed describing the pictures to baby girl as we were reading through the book.
The aim of the book is to introduce musical instruments and sounds to young children which I think is a fantastic idea. Jungle Jam completely meets this educational need. It also teaches them about working in a team.
At the back of the book is fabulous activity pages where you can make your own instruments. I love this part of the book. My baby is too young at the moment for this section, but for slightly older children this part is great. You only need simple equipment that you can find in and around your home as well.
Jungle Jam is the first book in a series of other educational development books. I’m looking forward to the next book!
Now onto the Giveaway. I am giving away one copy of Jungle Jam to one of my lovely readers. It would make an excellent Christmas present, if you are looking for ideas as Christmas is only just over 11 weeks away!
