Night Night, Jungle is a darling children’s book by Amy Parker that shows various jungle animals getting ready for bed. When I review children’s books, they generally fall into two categories: children’s books that I appreciate but would probably not buy – and children’s books that I absolutely love and would buy regardless of whether I had reviewed them. Night Night, Jungle is one of those books that I absolutely love.

Parker’s text, which incorporates a cute rhyming scheme, would be ideal to read to a young child at bedtime. One of my favorite pages reads: Cuddly chameleons / Curl up to go to sleep, / “Tell us one more story, please, / And we won’t make a peep!” Night night, chameleons. The book includes ten of these rhymes; the book has twenty pages in all.

Virginia Allyn’s illustrations are simply beautiful. I love the book’s color scheme, with lots of captivating blue and green tones. The book has a warm and gentle ambiance. One of my favorite pictures shows two toucans with a toothbrush. The book is a board book, with a soft cover, and thick pages with rounded corners. The book references God, reminding children that He loves us all. It would make a good bedtime story.
