Jack is such a little bookworm, much like I was when I was a child, so whenever we are offered books to review for him, I always agree as I know he’s bound to be excited by them turning up.
We were recently offered the chance to review Jungle Jam In Brazil by Noam and Louise Lederman. This is the second book in the Jungle Jam series (we were kindly sent the first book too) and are available to buy here as a pair for just £11 – how great! With more to come in the series, we can’t to read more!
Jungle Jam in Brazil, illustrated by Jason James, follows the story of Gina The Giraffe. The Jungle Jam band are going to Brazil to perform but Gina has never been away from home and is a little scared! Gina is very anxious on the whole trip but the band help her to conquer her fears.
The tale is a great story of learning to conquer your fears and how people can help you through it. With the positive encouragement of her Jungle Jam bandmates, she is able to give things a go that she otherwise wouldn’t. Aren’t they great friends? The tale really shows children that they can do anything they put their mind to if they really want to; that they too can be big,brave and strong.
I love stories for my children like this – stories that tell them that they can achieve their goals if they put their mind to it. Currently, Jack has very big ambitions and stories like this really encourage him to keep pushing for his dreams.
The illustrations in the book are absolutely incredible – just look at how great the animals look, how colourful they are. You can really tell how they are all feeling – Jason James has done an incredible job. As we expected, the words really convey the story well too. Done in rhyme, the story flows quickly and easily and keeps you interested throughout. Another great addition to the book is the inclusion of an activity sheet for your children too – Jack loves these in books so was happy to see this! There was even a Brazil facts sheet so your child can learn all about Brazil too which is great!
Jack loves to read this to himself now that he is getting so good with his reading or also loves reading it to Olivia. He is quite an independent little chap so I have read it to him a couple of times but he prefers to read it himself, haha!
