Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS. A collection of poems about animals and a story about a journey through the jungle to hunt for them. The search begins as a small group of ants marches off from their hill early in the morning. A verse then introduces each creature as encountered, until the end of the day when all of the animals are ready to sleep. As an added bonus, each poem gives a little information about the animal described. A nice rhythm is established and maintained. An occasional line is awkward, but overall the book reads well. The illustrations are equally playful and eye-catching. Done in oils, each one is bright, bold, and inviting, but totters on the brink of being cute. Large, double-page spreads make the animals easily seen from a distance, but children who view the pictures up close will delight in finding some of the ants on each page. An entertaining selection with lively illustrations and a format suitable for storytimes.?Dawn Ibey, Vancouver Public Library, Canada

Review

An entertaining selection with lively illustrations and a format suitable for storytimes. -- School Library Journal, November 1997

From its zebra-striped endpapers to its goofily grinning fauna, this picture book is a storytime all by itself. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, September 1997

"Wumble Jungle" as my two-year-old calls it, is a day-long safari that introduces young children to different wild animals. It features catchy rhymes that may or may not make sense (but this doesn't bother my two children, 5 and 2), and bright cheerful pictures. It's become part of our stable of bedtime story reading material. Keep an eye out for Andreae's other book, "Giraffes Can't Dance". I read it in my son's class and got applause from enraptured children at the end of the tale.

I read Rumble in the Jungle to a 3rd grade class for "Read Across America Day." I figured it might be a little below their reading ability but the humor and pictures made it all worthwhile! They loved the goofy rhymes (one is about an animal "being cool.") I'll be buying it for my own kids, ages 2 and 6!

Format: Hardcover
If you can believe it, my 3 1/2 month old absolutely LOVES this book. I figured she would like the bright illustrations, and boy was I right! Each time I turn the page, I am rewarded with a squeal of delight and her pumping her little legs with excitement. Reading it once is usually not enough for her. She begins to fuss when I close the book and put it down. As soon as I open it again, she's quiet and still. Turn the first page and, yep, you guessed it. I am thrilled she has her first favorite book-and one I love to read to her over and over. I am glad that it is not a five word book, like some books for children. The rhyming is great, too.

My preschooler adores this book, both the rhymes and illustrations. I enjoy it because it belongs in that rare class of children's books that parents can read REPEATEDLY without gritting their teeth from the pain of repetition. And as any parent knows, that's what will happen when your child falls in love with a book. I really wish I could find prints to decorate my child's walls with the fantastic illustrations also - simple and eye catching in lots of bright colors.

My 3-year didn't care for the book that much but it's OK. I think the art is nice but not detailed enough for my son. It was not quite what I expected, that is, a multi-page story. It's more like a group of animal flash cards put together in a book.

We love this book. My kids (ages 2 and 3) asked to hear it so often that it was no time at all before they were completing lines for me. We love the pictures and used them as springboards for some of the animals we've created in our "zoo" at home. I took the book to work with me at Mother's Day Out and another teacher had a fit over it, wanting to know where she could get it for her girls. I told her, "Try amazon.com, thy've got it all."

We have read to our son since he was born. He received this book as a gift, at the age of 9 months. By 14 months of age, he was able to recite, word per word, each verse describing the various different animals. He absolutely loved the vivid colors in the pictures and enjoyed locating all the tiny ants in each illustration. He is now 3 years old and demanded to take this book to his preschool class for show and tell. Need I say more?

I read this to my 20 month old almost every night. He loves the fabulous illustrations and the silly rhymes, and of course we add all the animal noises. My nieces and nephews are similarly enthralled when they come to visit; after one such visit, my sister-in-law suggested we get this book for my nephew's upcoming birthday, so here I am ordering another copy! Commotion in the Ocean is delightful in the same way.
