Enrich kids' worlds with this engaging (and educational) bilingual story book in dual English and German text. In 'Walking Through the Jungle', readers will join a fearless young girl explorer as she treks across deserts, climbs up mountains, floats in the ocean and travels through jungles by foot on her way around the world. Along the way, however, this girl stumbles across a variety of weird and wonderful creatures hiding in bushes, on the bottom of rivers, disguised by cactuses, and anywhere in between! Captivating illustrations and rhythmic text (similar to Eric Carle's 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear...' book) allows readers/instructors a real-world way to master the names of exotic animals and the sounds they make (with bilingual side-by-side English and German text). Recommended for ages 2 to 5.
