Jungle Night (Boynton on Board)

by Sandra Boynton (Author)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

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.

Perhaps even more delightful than the bouncy lullaby is Keith Boynton’s rich narration and Ma’s “animal snores” on cello, also freely available at the same link. Another sweet Boynton bedtime read-aloud for the family bookshelf.
