KIRKUS REVIEW

Animal antics abound in this colorful zoological primer for the preschool set.

The story itself, adapted from the 2002 traditional book of the same name—a day-long safari into the jungle to meet the animals that live there—progresses without a hitch, combining bold, eye-catching illustration with rhythmic rhyme, narrated beautifully by Laurie. This is one groovy jungle, with chimpanzees who "munch on each other's fleas," a zebra whose stripes impress his lady friend and gorillas who pound their chests like congo drums. Simple, inviting and interactive, the app version of the book adds to the fun with lifelike animal sound effects on each page and delightfully appropriate music for each animal. Be sure to listen for the swanky '60s-lounge Muzak on the flirty zebra’s page and the salsa groove on the crocodile’s page. The birds in the trees chime in with a tap. A simple puzzle game completes the jungle fun.

With more animal magnetism than techno bells and whistles, this safari succeeds at every turn. (iPad storybook app. 2-5)
