Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—When playground jungle-gym animals come to life, new twists are offered to a favorite song. While their mother reads a book on a nearby park bench, a brother and sister go on a fanciful safari and "give a roar" along with a lion, "laugh out loud" with a hyena, and "flap...wings" like a parrot. Warhola's lush watercolor spreads extend the fun. Comical scenes show a pileup on the slide (with the elephant stuck at the top) and a raucous game of leapfrog. Background details provide clues as to which animal will offer the next verse. The jungle stops stirring when the mother announces, "Time to go, kids!" The complete 10 stanzas are included at the end. This exuberant title will liven up any storytime with exotic sights and sounds.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

From Booklist

Warhola adds raucous illustrations to a familiar chant that's perfect for helping preschoolers get the wiggles out. A little boy, his older sister, and their mother arrive at Big Jungle Playground, but it's only after Mom gets lost in the book she has brought that the fun begins. The elephant statue springs to life, tapping its foot to the catchy title refrain. After a moment of surprise, the kids leap into action, as do other animal statues scattered around the playground. Soon everyone (except preoccupied Mom) is part of a joyous chorus--roaring like the lion, jumping like the frog, laughing like the hyena--while the spacious sandlot playground slowly turns into a tropical forest. With a double dose of color and energy, Warhola's gleeful pictures turn the song into a great visual joke. Won't Mom be surprised? Expect plenty of leaping, giggling, and stomping during storytime.

We took this book out of the library about 3 months ago for the first time and my son, 15 months at the time absolutly adored it. Now, he has loved to be read to since he was 12 months - will sit for 20-30 minutes at a time with book after book-my older two children never did that this early-but he still, after 3 months loves this book.
It was retuned to the library but we took it out again and have just been renewing it-I think it's time to buy our own copy.
He will get this book from the bottom of a pile (I know, I've put it there, lol) He just loves to follow along with the actions, and the pictues are so engaging - all the time, he points to the next animal that is 'coming alive' for the next page

UPDATE - 1/24/11 Reordering this book - they wore it out, it never seemed to grow old, and no that our youngest daughter is 16 months and loves to read as much as her older brother, it will again be well loved.

I have 2 year old children and have sung "If you're happy and know it" far too many times to count. This picture book was introduced to me in a children's library reading group and my kids totally fell for it. The pictures are great. What is also nice is that if I don't feel like singing, we can just flip through the pages and I can ask my kids questions about animals, sounds, body parts, etc., and they're still engaged.

My little one really loves this book! I checked it out from the library, and my daughter insists on reading it over and over, several times a day! Her favorite page is "If you're happy and you know it, crawl around." I have been trying to find a good children's book that encourages gross motor skills while still being familiar to children (from the song), and this is it! It's going on my amazon wishlist!

This is the third time I have purchased this book (for different families). I give it when the child is around two and it is a book that they can grow into. It does not follow the song. And that is a good thing. It teaches the kids to "roar", "scratch" and do all sorts of things that are fun while learning about animals. And they grow into it...because there's different things; words, sounds and pictures that they begin to see as they develop. The illustrations by James Warhola are fantastic. And I have since purchased two other books written and illustrated by him.

We've had this book checked out from the library for some time now and it's time to buy our own copy. It's such a fun interactive book with wonderful illustrations and is simple enough to where my two-year old can "read" it to herself. She's actually "read" it to me a couple times which is a nice change of pace. It was an INSTANT favorite in our house.

James Warhola's IF YOU'RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT presents a zany 'jungle edition' of a classic song/rhyme. Kids learn to roar, flap wings, laugh out loud and more as they follow the funny jungle animal antics accompanying a lively story perfect for a simple read-aloud.

If You're Happy and You know it by Jane Cabraea
Audio book but I'm pretty sure the colorful pictures go along with what the people are doing in the pictures.
Children's book about a monkey elephant and a giraffe. Remember playing this song with my grandson
as we did different things. Some silliness and laughter for all.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
