Description

I really enjoyed reading this story and rate it 5* because it is extremely active and allows children to join in by singing and dancing when the story is being told. I also enjoyed reading this story because when the story is being read to the children, clues are given before the animal is identified, such as “With a swingy swing here and a swingy swing there”. This therefore allows predictions to be made before the animal is revealed and as the animals are well known, this should be achievable. The capital letters when the animal is revealed allows the reader to differ their voice to interest the children and for them to understand this is an important part of the story. This was a gift from a friend. Just got around to listening to the cd that came with it and reading the text. Oh so cute! This will be a lot of fun at storytime.

Barefoot Books has created an animated version of each book in this series (they come on the CD, but are also online and linked below). Your child can watch these first if that kind of conditioning helps your kids to be more interested in the books (as it does mine). Barefoot Books is a pretty remarkable children's press for many reasons related to sustainability and manufacturing standards. They also have a firm commitment to inclusive books that showcase human diversity (including visible forms of disability). The Barefoot Singalong series is particularly special. Animal Boogie features a simple, repeating song with a great beat. Each verse there is a new jungle animal spied by a different child. That animal is performing an action, which the reader is meant to copy. This is great for working on what ABA and occupational therapists call "gross motor imitation." The book shows these actions: shake (bear), swing (monkey), stomp (elephant), flap (bird), leap (leopard), slither (snake), and sway (people). The CD which is included with the book offers the children a different way to listen to the story. The video of this story can also be found on YouTube which again offers children a different way to watch and listen to the story which would excite children. The CD and the video therefore can support children with English as an Additional Language as they can visually see what is happening and hopefully will be able to begin to understand words in English.This bright, colorful adaptation, set in the jungles of India, is based on the nursery song "Down in the Jungle" (sometimes called "Jungle Boogie"). It is the publisher's bestselling title, and it's easy to see why. Kids just love it. Through the jungle, the children see all different types of animals and are learning their actions, for example a child sees a leopard and learns how to leap.
