Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

While their oblivious mother reads a book on a nearby bench, two children bring a jungle-themed playground to life by singing the well-known title song. At the sound of, "If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet," an elephant slide suddenly transforms into a real pachyderm who stands on its hind legs and clomps. When the song urges everyone to "give a roar," a lion seesaw springs to its feet and does just that, each animal joining the fray. The fantasy reaches a fever pitch with games of leapfrog and belly-crawling and then seems to draw to an end when Mom rises from the bench, gives a stretch and declares it's time to go home. But Warhola (Uncle Andy's: A Faabbbulous Visit with Andy Warhol) slyly hedges his bets—maybe the playground really has turned into a jungle. Although the human characters feel a tad wooden and schematic, Warhola's animal cast possesses all the genial high spirits that readers know from his previous books. The elephant, by virtue of his sheer size, especially steals the scenes—he's a literal party animal. Ages 3-5. (Mar.)

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This book is composed of illustrations of jungle animals acting out the verses of the familiar action song. The phrase "If you're happy and you know it, scratch your fur," has an illustration of a monkey and other jungle animals scratching themselves, and next comes, "If you're happy and you know it, give a roar," which shows a lion and other jungle animals roaring. A boy and girl are seen on each page, doing the same things the animals do. This goes on until their mother tells them that it's time to leave what looks like a park in the jungle. The animals and kids are playing on slides and swings as they do all the actions. The last pages feature a repeat of the verses, along with an added verse, "If you're happy and you know it, do all ten." The large watercolor illustrations are colorful and fun. Preschool children should enjoy the verses and the pictures of the animals. All of the verses provide actions that are simple and would be fun for kids to do.

When playground jungle-gym animals come to life, new twists are offered to a favorite song. While their mother reads a book on a nearby park bench, a brother and sister go on a fanciful safari and "give a roar" along with a lion, "laugh out loud" with a hyena, and "flap...wings" like a parrot. Warhola's lush watercolor spreads extend the fun. Comical scenes show a pileup on the slide (with the elephant stuck at the top) and a raucous game of leapfrog. Background details provide clues as to which animal will offer the next verse. The jungle stops stirring when the mother announces, "Time to go, kids!" The complete 10 stanzas are included at the end. This exuberant title will liven up any storytime with exotic sights and sounds.

Kirkus Reviews
Pick this up for a surefire storytime crowd-pleaser. The simple, repetitive text provides a twist on the familiar song, instructing the audience to show their joy not only by clapping their hands and stomping their feet, but also by roaring, crawling around and beating their chests, among other animal-inspired activities. In Warhola's action-packed illustrations, two children explore the "Big Jungle Playground," which is filled with equipment in the shape of jungle creatures. To their delight, a new animal comes to life on each page with each new action, until, at the end, all of the animals on the playground have joined in the fun. The children's mother, meanwhile, has been perched on a bench reading a book throughout this adventure; although each spread has her in a slightly different reading posture, she is always oblivious to the excitement building around her. Be careful with this one. Read it to a group of children and you will almost certainly end up with your very own jungle by the time you've turned the final page. (Picture book. 3-6)
