Nice drawings, not very good rhymes.
on 25 May 2011
I bought this book for my 2-year-old son and he really likes it. He likes looking at the pictures of jungle animals and finding the little ants hidden on every page. I've tried to read the rhymes which go with the pictures, but except for the first one on the first page, the rest are rather poor and it is difficult to read them naturally. We end up making up our own stories about the animals and, as the pictures are very nice with lots of little details, that is good enough. As for the CD, my son does not really like it. Probably for the same reason that he prefers to listen to made-up stories rather than the actual poems. However, the CD includes nice music that he may grow to like when he is a little older. All in all, the book is not a bad purchase, but not as good as you may think from reading the first page shown as a preview.
