Review

'Just the present for over-excited toddlers in need of a little energy displacement. More than just a picture book, this sing-along, find-the-animal extravaganza, will get young children dancing from beginning to end, as they stomp like an elephant, shake with the bear. With printed music, audio CD and rhythmic text, there is much to enjoy here (and at a reasonable price) - not least the lively, high volume pictures showing an impossible, but totally beguiling jiving jungle world'- Independent magazine --Independant Magazine'The vibrant, fun illustrations in this book are packed full of jungle animals to find and count. The rhyme bounces along introducing a colourful collection of intriguing animals through lively word play and repetition. A musical score is included in the book.' - Nursery Education --Nursery EducationYoung children will love to sing and dance the animal boogie with the friendly creatures in this wonderful jungle. They can sing along to the catchy song whilst they look at or read the words in the book. The repetitive words of the song make it easy for children to learn, while the appealing tune and the bright and funny illustrations in the book will fire their imaginations. The guess the animal' theme which runs through the song will encourage children to participate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boogie Woogie Oogie.... 10 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Don't buy this unless you're willing to perform it at least once a day! Great fun though, and our 20-month daughter loves it. Bright, colourful illustrations of various jungle animals and scenes, and cheery song on CD (not one of those high-pitched singers favoured by nursery rhyme albums). Follow in the book as you stomp, leap, flap and swing around the room. Recommended as a 5 minute aerobic workout for parents too.

I first borrowed this book from the library for my son, aged almost three. He loved it so much that we have bought a copy for him, and four more for his friends and relatives.
The book is a series of "down in the jungle" segments, with different animals, doing different actions, but all joining in the animal boogie: "boogie woogie oogie". Each animal is being watched by a different child. My son loves to join in with this, and has his own very special boogie woogie oogie dance! He loves the bright illustrations, too.
It's a wonderful book to share with children of about two and a half upwards. A friend's six year old loves it just as much! As a parent, I like the fact that each animal is marked with it's proper name and where it comes from on the final page. The children are also a good mix, including children of different ethnic groups. There are plenty of opportunities for talking points.
I'd highly recommend this book to parents, friends and relatives of any child who loves to share books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well loved book 9 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a colourful beautifully illustrated book illustrating the animal boogie song. My children have enjoyed it at daycare so we purchased it for home, and were fortunate to also receive a cd with the song on it. My children love the colourful book, but it's hard to get them to spend long looking at the book - they just want to dance the animal boogie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! 3 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
Beautifully illustrated book with a catchy tune. Sing it once, you'll find yourself "boogie woogie oogie-ing" all the time. My niece and nephew loved the song (though they preferred my terrible singing to singing it themselves) and dancing to the music.

In addition, the children in the book are of different races and one of the girls is a wheelchair user. Wonderfully inclusive book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great sing-a-long 4 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
My 3.5 year old learnt this song at nursery so I got the book/CD for him at home as he loves it. The song/pictures everything is great.

The only thing that stopped me giving 5 stars was the thickness of the pages, as this book is aimed at younger children needs to be more sturdy! My copy already has several taped together pages.
