Bright and colourful illustrations accompany this dual-language edition of Walking Through the Jungle. With the simple, repetitive text in both English and Portuguese, the enchanting story will inspire both early readers and older learners who enjoy reading Portuguese and English in parallel.

Join this fearless young explorer as she discovers the different animals and terrains of the world in a whirlwind adventure, before getting home for her supper, safe and sound. 

Enchanting artwork and bilingual text will help introduce young children to a foreign language in a natural and relaxed way.


ISBN 9781852698560

Paperback, 32pp, 255 x 245mm

 

Walking Through the Jungle is a high-quality dual-language picture book, suitable both for children who are learning and reading Portuguese and English in parallel and those being introduced to Portuguese as a second language.The Portuguese in this text is fairly simple but it would be helpful for the parent / teacher to have a basic knowledge of the language as no pronunciation guide is included.

So negative about nature that I sent it back
Wednesday, 25 June 2014  | 

I got this book imagining that it helped children wonder at the beauty of the natural world - wrong! My husband read it first and was taken aback by the book's negative message. The little girl does indeed visit the jungle, the mountains, the ocean, the rivers, and the colourful illustrations do show a wonderful range of creatures there, but in every single place: "What do I see? I think I see a wolf / polar bear / snake / crocodile chasing after me." And the illustrator duly shows some hideous fiersome creature, teeth bared, chasing the terrified-looking girl on every other page. So if you want a book where the moral is that the natural world is scary, dangerous, and best avoided, then this is the book for you. If you want a positive book that helps inspire your child to be enthusatic and curious about the natural world, then look elsewhere. (Besides this, the text is minimal and repetitive, missing the opportunity to teach the words to match the lovely range of creatures shown in the pictures.)
