My kids and I just finished reading Abigail and the Jungle Adventure by Tali Carmi, and the kids loved it. It is a short story about a little girl named Abigail, who is spending time at her grandparents house, while her parents are out of town.
Abigail loves her grandparents house, and she loves to look at all the cool things that they have around their house. Abigail's grandpa was an inventor, so there was always new and extraordinary things to see.
One day, while her grandparents are napping, Abigail goes exploring, and find a very cool bicycle hidden in the attic.In its basket, was an old book, and when Abigail opened the book she saw pictures of amazing places, and there was a chant inside, that promised of great adventure, if you said the chant three times.
Well, Abigail does just that, and when she opens her eyes, she finds herself on an amazing adventure. She meets new animals and people, before retuning home. Grandma doesn't believe her story, but Grandpa smiles because he knows!
Very cute book, like I said, the kids loved it, and after finishing it they were curious to learn more about the place that Abigail had visited on her adventure.
