The Little Crooked Bookshelf

Jazzy in the Jungle 
by Lucy Cousins

This week's pick is from Cottager Kristen Tracy.

What it's all about . . .

A baby lemur plays hide-and-seek from his mother in a colorful and delightful jungle story.

Why it’s on the Crooked Bookshelf . . .

It’s fun to look for baby lemurs. And it’s even more fun with all the jungle animals helping.

Our favorite lines . . .

Mama JoJo looks by the tumtum trees. Where are you, Baby Jazzy?

Our favorite illustration . . .

From JAZZY IN THE JUNGLE. Illustration copyright 2013 by Lucy Cousins.
Why kids will love it . . .

It’s a colorful book with lift-up flaps that create a vivid and multi-layered jungle. The anteater is quite fetching.

Why grown-ups will love it . . .
It’s sweet and humorous and a good way to teach a child about all the animals that live in the jungle.
