To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Illustrations are bright, colorful and fun. It is CRUCIAL to teach the next generation to value planet earth. These stories plant seeds and the build the mindset that Earth and everything in it is to be valued, cared for and cherished. And the message is delivered in a very positive, age appropriate way. I wish I had these stories when I was young. I may have clued in a lot sooner about the importance of caring for Mother Earth. Well Done and Bravo to the author! I would HIGHLY recommend!
We really liked this book. It is colourful and adventurous and it helps us to learn stuff like how to protect animals and the places they live. Jingo is so cute and my four year old granddaughter thought the roaring sound was his belly because he was so hungry.
We would recommend this book for children 4-10 year olds, and it would be great in a school library so kids can read it and talk about saving the forest.

I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.
An awesome book cover, great hand-drawn colored pictures & proper font & writing style. A very professionally written children’s (elementary; MS) rhyming educational storybook. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters, settings, etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s educational movie, a classroom presentation, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is an extremely easy rating of 5 stars.

Jingo in the Jungle is a fictional story, which later becomes a non fiction book with photos of wildlife the characters were based on and text about them. The illustrations are colourful, cartoon like and quite well done. There's probably a little bit too much text on each page when you consider the attention span of readers young enough to be the target market of picture books, let alone their reading ability. The story itself is okay, an orangutan having a great time singing to other animals has its performance interrupted by some noisy tree felling machines. It decides to organise the other animals to fight back. Being we have such a fictional far fetched solution, it's a bit odd that the story has the realistic blunt real world ending. And that's not even considering the humans will use the fact the animals attacked them as a reason/excuse to come back and exterminate them, which isn't in the book.
Jingo in the Jungle has been formatted to be read in landscape mode (holding your device horizontally), where it takes up the entire screen. Words and pictures display together on the screen like a traditional picture book A lot of self published Kindle authors can't be bothered to format their work and it displays like a mess with bits of text on one page and an image on a small part of the screen on another, so I always like to take the time to point out when authors care about their reader's experience and their own work enough to take the time to format it.
Jingo, an orangutan, lives with his rainforest friends in Southeast Asia. One day a rumble is heard in the distance. The bulldozers are coming!
The animals run helter skelter as the trees come crashing down. Jingo refuses to submit. He rallies all the animals together to fight. How can they make a stand against human technology? Will they be successful?
This book is based on a true story. Beautiful illustrations feature vivid colors and appropriate expressions portray the somber mood. Ferrari writes books that explain in simple terms the dangers that face our planet. A glossary contains animal photographs and the vocabulary connected with deforestation. This book is a good way to introduce the topic for classroom discussion. Highly recommended for elementary and middle-grade readers.
This colourful picture book tackles the global problem of deforestation in a way that children will understand, by following it from the view point of Jingo, an orangutan, and his jungle friends. Although the animals band together to drive away the scary bulldozers in the story, their homes have already been lost, and, as all too often reflected in nature, they must head further away to the shrinking area where their jungle still has trees.
After the story, the author includes photographs of animals whose habitats are being destroyed by this global disaster, and explains more about the ecological effects deforestation has on our planet.
I was really happy to find this book. My kids love animals and I work a lot with children to build awareness about the need for conservation. The story is colourfully illustrated and has a fun start. But reality checks in quite soon. It is extremely unlikely that animals would be able to do anything about deforestation. But I wouldn't want to read a book with a sad ending to my kids and have them cry either. Overall the book does raise awareness, especially with the photos at the end.
This is a well written book that teaches how the environment works and how destruction can and will impact the planet. The story of Jingo and his friends trying to save their habitat gives hope and understanding of what is happening in remote areas of our planet while inspiring who reads this story to take action. The story follows up with real images and facts. Wonderful for all ages.
