My 3 year old grandchild loves this book and is keen to learn the names of the animals and information that is supplied. I can see it will be a well loved book and that she will continue to benefit for years, as she is gradually able put it all into context. You can make the sounds go on and on by moving the pages.

I've bought from this series "Jungle" Jungle (Sounds of the Wild), "Night Time" Maurice Pleger Noisy World - Night Time (Maurice Pledger's Sounds of the Wild) and "Ocean" for my son (3 years) and my wife's niece (turning 6).
We all liked the "Night Time" the most and "Jungle" comes second.
The pop-up elements are really good and the kids like the sounds.
They are also educational, but for non-native English speakers hard to read.

Before I ordered them, I asked myself why all the books are in Amazon.co.uk twice. Once from Templar Publishing and once from Silver Dolphin. I guess that both books are identically, because even the Silver Dolphin version states that text and design are copyright Templar Company plc.
I assume that the Templar edition is aimed for the English market (has an English address in it) and and the Dolphin edition is originally aimed for the USA market (has an address in California in it). The different stated number of pages is probably only because some people have problems counting pages (double pages counted as one page or included title and back cover).

Another fantastic addition to the Maurice Pledger range. Our son loves this book and really enjoys emulating the whales and dolphins. He's now old enough to look through himself and it's often the book selected off the shelf. The pop up elements are delicate, so not one to be left with a young child unattended, unless you're a good with selotape and glue.

I love this range of books. We already have Safari and Birds, so this is another one for our collection. My son, 5, has loved these for years, and never seems to grow out of them, In fact the older he gets, the more he gets out of them as now he asks questions and wants more information about the animals depicted in the books

These books are great, I have a few already & are hoping to collect them all. Great pop up themes and sound effects, that if you closed your eyes, would think you are in the middle of the jungle.
Great entertainment for young readers, whilst learning about wildlife.
I bought these for my grandchildren for when they are old enough to understand, as at the moment all they want to do is pull at the pop ups !! I would definatly recommend these books for children 8 years plus ... You won't be disappointed.

When I saw this book for the first time in London on shelves of a famous bookshop in Green Park, I was instantly impressed and fascinated by the charme of this clever, emotional and educational book that reproduces in a very realistic way the sound of the deep Atlantic, the sounds of the shore, the carribean waters...I instantly loved this book and I decided to buy for my little nephew in Italy. After two years of gifts and books and a lot of things he still longs for this amazing book that still keeps on entertaining and stimulating his vivid imagination.
I suggest this book to everyone that has a child. Money well spent. Money always well spent when invested in culture and books.

P.S: after Ocean, I bought Safari and Night time as well (by the same author).Great great bookk

Very well presented pop-up scenes with associated sounds - things to talk about, and interleaved with some harder facts -might help to lift the age-range who would enjoy this book.

Wonderful for 2 to 4 year-olds. The book is fascinating and needs to be read again and again. It is also great that you can replace the batteries when the sounds stop working.
