New Books Monday

Jazzy in the Jungle by Lucy Cousins is fabulous die-cut fun.
Jazzy is a baby Ring-tailed Lemur.  As Mama searches for Jazzy, we encounter so many different jungle animals.

The illustrations were done in gouache and are bright and eye-catching.  The die-cut pages frame the other animals and Mama as she wanders around looking for her baby.

There is lovely repetition with all the other animals answering Mama's call with "Not here."  This title would be great in Preschool Storytime, it's a large book with bright colors that will keep children's interest.  It would work well in a large or smaller group.  It appeals, also, to one-on-one exploration with a parent and child.
