A Walk In the Jungle is a storybook with a purpose. The story includes activities and movements to help children and adults reduce daily stress, enhance learning and above all have fun while playing.
The above lists some of the benefits the author has observed in himself and children under his care. The movements are adaptations from several personal development and stress reduction methods the author has experienced and used successfully with children over several years.
The black and white book can be colored by both adult and child to provide a relaxing or cooperative parent/child experience.
Remember, it’s ok to color outside the lines! It is not the final
picture that counts but the quality shared time and experience that your child will remember long after this book has gone.
At the back of the book are more in depth pages of reference and acknowledgement as to what each movement or activity may achieve for you and your children.
“Hi boys and girls. I am
Nellie the elephant.
Let’s put on our listening ears.”
Listening Ears: helps with: listening and focusing skills.
Why it is important: Attention is taken away from play and other activities while getting children to focus and listen.
How it is done: Grasp each ear with the thumb on the inside rim and the pointer finger on the outside rim. Uncurl the ear down to the ear lobe using the pointer finger along with the thumb. Bring pointer finger and thumb back to the top of the ear and repeat several times.
