What is more fun than learning about the jungle? From rain forests in the Amazon to the jungles of India. Tigers, tree frogs, pink dolphins? Learn about jungle animals and habitats with these colorful children’s books about the jungle. Create a jungle unit study or add to your bedtime reading. These books are not only educational, but just plain fascinating. I’ve included a variety of novels for kids, factual books about jungle life, and fun picture books for younger kids.
Our favorite jungle books are the photographic books with beautiful photos taken deep within the rain forest. Enjoy these books about the jungle for kids and please share your favorites in comments.

We spent at least a year or so reading up on all the rainforests. My middle son was obsessed with them and we read so much about them, watched lots of movies and videos and he even wrote up a whole report with a 3-d diorama. It’s such a fun subject to explore.
