Last year we were sent a copy of Jungle Jam to review – you can read about Jungle Jam here. This year we have been sent the new book, which is called Jungle Jam in Brazil.
We love books in this house and as soon as E got home from school we sat there and we read it. I read it once to her and J and then she sat there and read it again on her own.
The book has the same characters that are in the previous Jungle Jam book, because of this E was excited as she reads the first book frequently.
Jungle Jam in brazil is about the characters visiting Brazil to play in a concert. The book uses authentic words which teaches the reader a little bit about Brazil.
Everyone meets a friendly Macaw and then they explore the new country. Trying out new food, musical instruments and lots of different experiences.
Whilst everyone else is enjoying the new experiences Gina the Giraffe is struggling. She is nervous about leaving home and trying new things. This story line is one that children can relate to.
The book encourages team work as all the character’s in the book work together to encourage Gina and in the end she tries new things and enjoys being in Brazil. The underlying messages in Jungle Jam in Brazil make’s the book a great book for children. It teaches about team work and also has a great story line.
There is a great activity page at the end of the book where the children have to look for the musical instruments hidden in a town in Brazil. Also at the back of the page is a page with facts about Brazil, I really like this addition.
The illustrations and colours in the book are very crisp. The book is aimed at 0-5, however older children will enjoy reading the book for themselves. Take a look at the Jungle Jam website to find out more about the books.
I am lucky enough to offer one of my readers to win a copy of this great book.
