Welcome to Jungle the Bungle. Jungle the Bungle offers illustrated children’s books in multiple languages for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Scientific research shows that young children between 0-6 years have a special ability to learn languages very easily. That’s why more and more primary schools already start learning a second language, such as English or Spanish in the first grade. Jungle the Bungle wants to help children by introducing a second language to them in a fun way. Therefore we offer educational children’s books full of adventures about the inhabitants of Jungle the Bungle. Where children can learn about the wonderful world of animals, topography and languages. Each animal has its own character traits that children can identify with. Are you ready to meet all of our animal friends from Jungle the Bungle?
Here we have Monito, the naughtiest of the family. He is always full of energy and the other animals benefit from that as well! Monito is always in for an adventure. Sometimes that causes him trouble. Especially when Kakkie and Zazy are joining him. Luckily the other animals are always there for him.
There is a reason why this cockatoo has the name Kakkie. When she startles she drops a little poop out of the sky. Kakkie loves dancing and music. Sometimes when things don’t go in Kakkie’s way, she can get a little bit hysterical. Even though she gets others on the nerves sometimes, all the other animals love her, because she always has the right intentions.
Zazy the zebra is the most happy and the most creative one of the gang. Zazy is always in for something and loves to dress up with everything he finds in the jungle. Sometimes the outfits are hilarious, but Zazy doesn’t care much. Most important for Zazy is to be the way he is, no matter what others think.
Fanti is the biggest one of the family, and also has the biggest heart. This elephant loves reading and keeps surprising the others with all her knowledge. The others learn from that as well. Fanti loves daydreaming along the river in the jungle. Even though this giant is very relaxed, Fanti also loves to go on an adventure with the others.
Shilly the turtle is the oldest of them all, but no one knows exactly how old. Shilly himself also has no idea. He does say that he has lived for thousands of years and has experienced every era, but whether the other animals believe him… That's why Shilly knows so much about history and he loves to share this with the others. Sometimes his stories last for hours because he is so slow, but it cannot be different when you are a turtle.
Lowy is a vegetarian lion. Of course he is, because otherwise he would like to eat his friends for dinner. Lowy loves to be in shape and that's why he is careful with what he eats and he always makes sure he is exercising enough. Lowy loves to be on the water as he is a real beachboy. After every activity though he is rather lazy then tired and chilling is all he wants to do.
Amigo the sloth is high upon the trees most of the time. Here is where he finds rest and balance. This also makes the other animals more zen. If the other friends are disagreeing about something, they like to get advice from Amigo. Also on the ground he meditates and he feels one with nature. This sloth has never heard about the word stress, and he knows how to keep the group together.

Hi, I am the founder of this multilingual concept. Thank you for taking a look at the site of Jungle the Bungle. I was raised bilingual, and since I spoke Dutch and Spanish at a young age, I have a lot of affinity with languages. I noticed that (especially very) young children absorb languages and knowledge effortlessly. That’s where the idea for the multilingual books of Jungle the Bungle came from. As a young mother of twins, I saw that there were not many fun books that playfully respond to the language development of children. Most parents already know that reading aloud is good for children. And there are more and more studies showing that very young children learn new languages very easily. After the age of 10, the ability to learn languages from the inside out decreases somewhat. And after the age of 15 it has actually disappeared and you have to make a lot of effort to master a new language.
Hey, I’m Amber and I am also part of Jungle the Bungle. What I love about this concept is that it really has a purpose: to contribute to the language development of young children. And just as important: Jungle the Bungle is most off all very FUN! We believe that intrinsic motivation to do something, is the best motivation. Learning should be fun! Incidentally, it offers so many possibilities to speak several languages. The younger you are, the easier it will be. I always had a passion for traveling and different cultures, and therefore also with languages. In addition, I think children are such a nice target group because they are full of fantasy and have a large imaginary world. We have the plan to do many more great extensions which will mean even more fun for young children. So keep an eye on the website!
