TIGER TALES WEEK: Commotion in the Ocean and Rumble in the Jungle

Fun, snappy poems for different ocean and jungle animals. Ocean includes animals from crabs to barnacles to polar bears. Jungle includes animals from chimps to zebras to gazelles.


Clever, well done rhyming books. The final poem in Oceans didn't quite match the rhythm and charm of the rest of the book. I appreciated the levity the author uses to lighten up the reality of the food chain in the wild.
Ocean: 4 out of 5 stars
Jungle: 5 out of 5 stars

Recommended for: children under 6 as well as some older animal lovers. Would be fun for library/bookstore reading times as well as pre-school classroom reading, too.

Cautions: none

GIVEAWAY: Don't forget about our giveaway. Comment on an entry this week for a chance to win a couple picture books from Tiger Tales.
