What's The Jungle Book About

Publisher Summary

Venture deep into the jungle on an animal-naming safari in The Jungle Book: A BabyLit® Animals Primer. Spy a sneaky snake, a lazy bear, and a proud panther before roaring like a tiger into the night. Jennifer Adam’s carefully curated quotations provide the best of Rudyard Kipling’s descriptions of Kaa, Baloo, Bagheera, Shere Khan and more while teaching little ones the characteristics of these colorful jungle animals.

3.0 / 7.0

I’m not a fan of Kipling’s original novel, and this BabyLit animals primer doesn’t do much for me. The illustrations are very cute, but it’s essentially just a book with names of animals, and there are a lot of books with names of animals out there. Because The Jungle Book in its original format isn’t really something I want my kids reading anyway, having character names and quotes from the novel just seems busy and confusing.
