Zoe's Jungle

1 CD. 5 min. Dreamscape Media. 2015. $14.99. ISBN 9781681412344.
K-Gr 2—Mom is giving Zoe and Addie only five more minutes to play. Is that enough time for an intrepid explorer to stalk the wild Addiebeast? The playground becomes an imaginary jungle as time ticks down and the girls squeeze in as much adventure as they possibly can. Readers dive into a child's make-believe world in this delightful tale about Zoe and her little sister. Lively jungle rhythms introduce the story, and Cris Dukehart reads the tale with vim, creating distinctive voices for both girls.
VERDICT Since the pictures carry much of the book's childlike exuberance, this charming audio production would be best used with the book for an enjoyable reading/listening experience.
