Description

Imaginations will soar from the forest floor, up through the canopy and back down again, following the circle of life in this clever adaptation of the song "The Green Grass Grew All Around." The jungle comes alive as children learn about a wide variety of the animals (jaguars, emerald tree boas, leafcutter ants, sloths, poison dart frogs, toucans, and bats) and plants (kapok trees, liana vines, and bromeliads) living in the lush Amazon rainforest. Delve even deeper into the jungle using sidebars and the three-page "For Creative Minds" educational section.

Únete a los animales con el retozo divertido de pies: corriendo, saltando, brincando, y luego descansando, justo como lo hacen los bichos y las criaturas que figuran en Kimberly Hutmacher, Patas, garras, manos, y pies. Acompáñanos en este sueño a un viaje emocionante desde la mañana hasta la noche usando las manos y los pies justo como las ardillas, monos, ratas, arañas, ranas, pingüinos, elefantes, leones, canguros, pandas, y águilas. Viaja a la selva exuberante, a la sabana africana, al interior australiano, y a la region congelada de la antártica. Finalmente, mientras el sol baja, acurrúcate bajo las cobijas y mientras dormitas recordarás a los animales jugando, inspirado por las ilustraciones imaginativas de Sherry Rogers. Después de todo, hasta los animales salvajes necesitan algún tiempo para descansar ¡después de un día de juego rápido con los pies!
