There are ten jungle animals to meet in this book, and six flaps to turn to learn about opposites: “Hello Zebra, your stripes are black and white.” When the flap (which is a bit smaller than the regular page) is turned, a parrot can be seen soaring over the zebra’s head. “Hello there, parrot, your feathers are multi-colored.” Click here for more of the curledupkids.com book review of Liesbet Sleger's Quiet Koala, Noisy Monkey: A Book of Jungle Opposites.
