It is a world teeming with life, and Jungle, through its vivid combination of color and motion, parts the veil on this mysterious land and reveals the living exuberance within. Turn the pages and watch a tarantual scuttle across the jungle floor, a dancing whipsnake flick its tongue, a Bengal tiger on the prowl, and a brilliant green-and-red macaw soar above the canopy.

The photos in these books bring the animals to life, even more so than typical photographs, because you actually get to see the animals move! Readers of all ages will find some appeal in either the facts about the animals or the moving photos (or both).
