Back Cover: Make way for Jamboree Day! Little Tree Frog hip-hop hurries through the deep jungle to spread the news: the party is here, the moment is now.
Ants come marching, and flamingos fly. Lion is all decked out in his finest tie and tails. The merry-go-round spins, and the jamboree train chugs. The bands play bebop, blues, and jazz – with a toot-toot-tootle and a razzmatazz as everyone jitterbugs, boogies, and bops to the beat.
With its infectious rhymes and exuberant illustrations, this toe-tapping treat guarantees a grand time for all young readers.
Mine: What a wonderful frog story. It’s also a very colorful picture book that has fun and whimsical characters. Wonderful rhymes dance off the page just like the animals. The costumed animals are the best.
