Introducing Jungle Night, a worthy companion to the 24-million-copy, perennially bestselling Boynton on Board series. Jungle Night is a fabulously jungly Boynton bedtime board book, in a cool new size. PLUS there’s a free download: a mesmerizing 4-minute nighttime soundtrack featuring Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Ron Block (of Alison Krauss Union Station) on guitar, and Keith Boynton narrating. The music is Erik Satie’s beloved “Gymnopédie No. 1” plus cool jungle percussion—making it a “Jungle Gymnopédie.”
Sandra Boynton’s board books are not just books, they are sales events. And no wonder: kids and parents alike love the captivating rhythmic text, the clever humor, and the terrific animal characters. In Jungle Night, Boynton debuts a new, larger format and a more intricate landscape. And everything that makes Boynton…well, BOYNTON…is here: a great cast of characters (Jungle frogs! Wild river-hogs! Even a gorilla!) and language and sounds that are so fun to read aloud. Plus an irresistible flourish of silliness that the youngest readers will love.
Jungle Night is a delightful book to read, with pictures to love, and a great musical track to download—all meant to be savored over and over, for a family bedtime experience of pure joy.
