Reviews - What do customers think about The Pop-Up Rumble in the Jungle?
Missing Giraffe! Aug 24, 2008
On the first page, there is foreshadowing for all the future animals you will find in the "jungle" - for example, the lion's tail peaking out. My two-year-old has caught on to this, which is great. EXCEPT, part of a giraffe's neck is clearly visible on the first page, but there is no page with a giraffe on it! My two year old drives us crazy trying to "find the giraffe" and we just explain that the makers of the book must have been over budget so they cut out the giraffe page from production (and forgot to get rid of him from the first page). What cheapskates!
Great pop-up book Feb 2, 2008
I got this book for my 15-month old daughter. It's very bright, colorful with simple pop-ups - a monkey that swings, a crocodile that opens and shuts it jaw... I could not find anything this nice in the usual bookstores. My daughter is very attracted to it but has a tendency to tear off the pop-up features, so it might be better suited for a slightly older child.

Children just love the pop-up pictures. This helps to keep their attention during story time!
My daughters' favorite book Nov 18, 2003
My daughters have loved this book since they were about six months old. They get so excited when I grab the book and say that I hear "a rumble in the jungle." The pictures are bright and lively and the rhymes are very catchy. The animals pop out at you and move when you open and close the book slightly. My girls grab at the pages as the lion roars, the boa constrictor hisses, the crocodile laughs about the animals that come to the river to drink, etc. We read this book every day and it never gets old. They love it.
