Publisher’s Blurb: “The Junglies Collection” combines the first five “Junglies” books into one beautifully illustrated children’s book.

The “Junglies” are about the adventures of five jungle animals and their game warden friend. The “Junglies” offer young readers enjoyable stories with lessons about teamwork, honesty and perspectives.

The stories also represent the theme “Unity in Diversity” neutrally using animals as opposed to people, and are a good platform to introduce the topic of endangered species.

Get to know “Aga” the tiger, “Kiki” the very naughty monkey, “Raff” the worried giraffe, “Elle” the calm elephant and “Abbit” the clever rabbit as you share their adventures.

5 Keywords (other than themes): animals, endangered, party, teamwork, diversity

Brief Review (in under 50 words): Interesting tales and a good way to talk about endangered animals too.
