It was bedtime in the Jungle: book review for your little adventurers

Bedtime in the Jungle

We have a new favourite book in our house. It was Bedtime in the Jungle by John Butler is a gorgeous picture book. Honestly, I want to cuddle up with the animals as their parents settle them down to sleep as night falls myself.

There are crocodiles and rhinos, monkeys and wolves and a fold up extended page with baby elephants.

The book works on two levels. On one hand it is a counting book; count the baby animals (and even the little white moths if you’re feeling enthusiastic).

On another level it has a gentle repeating text with just the right amount of rhyme to settle down baby humans too.

It was bedtime in the jungle, And the stream was shining blue,

A monkey made her bed, For her babies two.

“Rest,” said the mother. “We’ll rest,” said the two.

And they rested in their bed, By the stream shining blue.

There is so much to see and talk about in the artwork which is realistic yet cuddly.  It comes highly recommended by me and the grandchildren.
