Read full description of the books Jungle Bullies:Written by Steven Krull and illustrated by Vincent Nguyen, Jungle Bullies as the title explains, looks at the topic of bullying using a range of animals as the characters/main plot. The story sets out with an elephant wanting to bathe in the pond, but finding that the pond is already taken up by a hippo, the elephant uses his size in order to make hippo leave the pond. This trend continues with the larger of the two animals making the smaller one move from a specific spot/place until the trend is reversed with one of the animals sticking up for themselves.
I like the fact that the book has used animals in order to portray bullying, which is such a relevant topic, especially in schools. This book is a great way to address bullying for pupils as well as teachers and teaching staff.
The book is colourful with the pictures being the main focus such as the animals facial expressions giving the reader the ability to presume what they would be feeling. This I feel would be a great way to use the book in a classroom setting, having children interpret what is happening in the story.
The story also has a nice little rhyme that is used by the smaller animal to the larger one when asking them to share the space with them. I also like that when the animals say the rhyme, all the other animals that have been bullied as well as with them, showing support which is also a nice theme about friendship and helping others.
I feel that the story didn't need as many words as it used, with some of the sentences used being quite lengthy for younger children to read. Although as stated previously the pictures do a really good job of letting the reader know what is going on, so most younger children probably would not even read the sentences provided.
I feel that the book is aimed at children from 5 plus, with the format of the 'pictures do the talking'.
As stated previously I feel that this would be a great book in order to either introduce the topic of bullying or to revisit this either in a one to one situation/or as a whole class as to why bullying is wrong and the effects it can have on someone.
