JUNGLE: A Photicular Book by Dan Kainen and Kathy Wollard

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Using revolutionary Photicular technology (a combination of precision sliding lenses and video imagery) artist and inventor Dan Kainen and science writer Kathy Wollard bring to life the creatures of the rain forest in fluid 3-D motion.


About the book:
Turn the pages of JUNGLE and watch a tarantula scuttle across the jungle floor, a dancing whipsnake flick its tongue, a Bengal tiger on the prowl, and a brilliant red-and-green macaw soar above the canopy. Each image is accompanied by engaging, revealing, fascinating animal facts. JUNGLE honors the beauty of the world’s rain forest animals—and emphasizes the importance of preservation.

Dense and humid and filled with secrets, the rain forest is home to more than half the world’s plants and animals. Using unique Photicular technology, Jungle parts the mysterious veil of this sun-dappled land and reveals—in fluid 3-D motion—the living exuberance within. 

It’s magical! In a world saturated with video, Photicular technology weaves a very special spell, capturing intimate, moving moments of life on earth, and tapping deeply into the reader’s imagination. With three books published—Safari, Ocean, and Polar—the bestselling series has over 1.3 million copies in print.

Having reviewed the SAFARI edition of this series, we couldn't wait to check out JUNGLE!  These books are so cool and this technology is absolutely amazing.  Wait a great way to bring books to life and to get the younger generation excited about animals and preservation!  The photography is stunningly beautiful and I have found the books to be a very useful tool in our homeschool zoology lessons.  Even as an adult, I am still really impressed by the quality of these photicular books and the joy they bring with the turn of every page!
