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.)Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was amazed at how simple to understand yet how challenging 'Prayer WarrIor-Praying according to God's Will" was. It not only instructs on praying in the spirit, praying for self, but addresses effective praying for family members, church, the nation, and the world. It is clear the author has a passion for prayer and has spent a lot of time researching the scriptures and seeking God intimately on the subject of prayer. Most helpful are the different themes in alphabetical order with scripture given for theme to put on individual prayer cards. I have read numerous books on prayer but honestly feel this book surpasses them all. If you have a sincere desire to become a true prayer warrior, this book is an excellent resource.
