A young girl exploring the jungle... What does she see? A great story book for young children to join in with. Early years and KS1 love this story book. They enjoy going on a mission through the jungle and facing the animals they do. Children find this book engaging, they like joining in and making animal sounds as and when they come across each animal in the jungle. Children also enjoyed reading allowed the phrases that repeat within the story book such as; ‘walking through the jungle, what do ...more

This is really just an illustrated sleeve for a Fred Penner song. As a book in and of itself, it's a disappointment.

Walking through the jungle is about young explorer who adventures through the different terrains of the world meeting all kinds of animals on her way.

This brilliant picture book is full of brightly coloured illustrations with a simple catchy rhythm and rhyme with extensive use of repetitive language that will encourage children widely to read and sing along.
This highly inclusive and entertaining book is a must read for so many. In particular children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), Englis

Summary:
A little girl takes a walk in the jungle. Along her walk she encounters a tiger, a monkey, an elephant, a snake, and an alligator. The little girl sings a song to herself so she won't be afraid to keep on walking.

Review:
This song book is adorable. I think the words will be easy for young children to remember because all you do is replace the animal name each time. This song also teaches children not to be afraid and be brave when they may have

Walking through the Jungle by Debbie Harter is a lovely and fun sing along story of a little girl on an adventure, coming across different animals in their distinct habitats, before returning home for tea with them all. The story is great for younger ones as it is told using lots of repetition and rhyme which makes it easy to remember and join in with.

I think this story is brilliant for younger ones. It’s really engaging with brightly coloured pages full of animals and things to look at. I woul

Walking through the Jungle by Debbie Harter is a children’s book featuring an abundant amount of repetition and end rhyme to create a rhythm which will carry readers from beginning to end. The protagonist goes on an adventure around the world. I say around the world rather than jungle because at one point she finds herself being chased by a polar bear indigenous to polar regions. Additionally, she is featured riding a camel away from a snake in the desert. Harter dramatic verse is easy to follow ...more

Another fun adventure from Debbie Harter (with the help of Fred Penner). A young girl adventures through various environments, meeting some potentially frightening animals along the way- but she reconciles in the end as they all have tea and cakes together! Fun sing-along, easy to follow, good for early readers with rhyming, repeating text. Enjoy!

In this book a little girl is walking through many different places. In each place she encounters a different animal. I use this book to teach categorizing. Students help me sort and list each animal and the location it is found.
