In a world that is fast shrinking, where animal habitats are dwindling and where certain species are falling close to extinction, it is so important we teach our young the value of life. Each mammal, each bird, fish, reptile and insect has a place and we are their future. A Lesson in the Jungle is an easy to read teaching aid, a journey with a lesson to learn, a wonderful story with detailed illustrations creating a great tool for teaching a valuable lesson about preserving life within the animal kingdom.
Henrietta and Harvey arrive in Africa to capture wild animals to sell to a zoo. Two children, Jenny and John, want to save the animals and help them stay with their families. They are forced to seek the help of a magical witchdoctor, who not only rescues the animals but teaches the hunters a valuable lesson about preserving life within the animal kingdom. Lesson learnt, Henrietta and Harvey promise to return next year as well. Only this time they will arrive with a camera and respect for the animals of the jungle.
The preservation of life rests within the delicate hands of our children and we owe them the tools they will need to make this world a better place.
