PreSchool-Grade 1. This book begins "Walking through the jungle,/Walking through the jungle,/What do you see?/What do you see?/I think I see a lion,/Chasing after me,/Chasing after me" and continues in this vein as a girl meets five more animals. The text is extremely similar in concept and rhythm to Bill Martin's Brown Bear, Brown Bear... (1983) and Polar Bear, Polar Bear... (1991, both Holt). The bold double-page artwork will draw readers instantly, and they'll find themselves poring over the brightly colored, stunning, acrylic illustrations. Varying facial expressions cleverly convey happiness or fear on the faces of the main character and animals as they encounter one fierce creature after another. While children will enjoy this book, it's unfortunate that it's so close in concept and cadence to Martin's books.?Barbara McGinn, Oak Hill Elementary School, Severna Park, MD
