An assortment of jungle animals and children of varying ethnicities (and one in a wheelchair) look on as a purple elephant, orange anteater, red cobra, and others hide on one spread and reveal themselves on the next in this energetic guess-the-animal song. Repetition, a catchy rhythm, and plenty of details will keep viewers interested. A simple melody is appended. Copyright 2001 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Harter (Walking Through the Jungle) once again plunges into a flamboyantly hued jungle, and as the title hints the joint is jumpin'. With a cast of multi-ethnic children (including a wheelchair-bound girl) serving as guides, readers discover that all the inhabitants have rhythm, like the fluffy black bear with a purple nose who "goes shake, shake, boogie, woogie, oogie!" and a hooded red snake with blue polka dots who "goes slither, slither, boogie, woogie, oogie!" Harter offers up spirited animal characterizations on each spread: a wiry orange monkey swings through the sapphire sky, a lean saffron leopard covers two spreads in a single leap. The paper-over-board book's visual electricity, along with its irresistible repetition of the "oogie" sound and rollicking beat (a simple music score is included at the end of the book, so the text can be sung) make this a particularly good choice for a lively group with an itch to move.

PreS-Gr 2-Filled with brilliant tropical colors, this lively picture book combines poetry, song, and dance into a dazzling and fun-packed guessing game. On one double spread, the text reads, "Down in the jungle, come if you dare!/What can you see shaking here and there?" A clue in the illustration shows a boy peaking at an animal that is partly concealed by a large tree. A turn of the page reveals a bear that likes to dance: "Shake, shake, boogie, woogie, oogie!/That's the way she's shaking here and there." A monkey, a leopard, an elephant, and several other creatures also move in their own particular ways. The rhythm of the text encourages children to boogie-woogie right along. The vivid illustrations, done in watercolor, crayon, and pen and ink, show lush jungle scenes, colorful animals, and a cast of smiling children. A simple musical score is included. Similar in tone to Harter's Walking through the Jungle (Orchard, 1997), this book makes a great choice for storyhours.-Karen Land, Greenport Public School, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
