Board book: Jungle Animals

Jungle Animals. Xavier Deneux. 2018. Twirl. 20 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence word: crocodiles

Premise/plot: Jungle Animals is a board book in Twirl's Baby Basics series. It was created with very young ones in mind. Each spread shows a jungle animal--or jungle animals. There's just a word or two per spread.

My thoughts: This one features high-contrast illustrations. Think bold and bright. There's also a tactile element to the illustrations--there is usually something on every page that little hands can reach out and touch. (For example, the three ants about to be eaten by the ant-eater). I found the book to be engaging. The illustrations are just stunning.
