Meet the Jolly Jangles by Marilyn Cook is a delightful book written in rhyming verse where children are introduced to Jolly Jangles, a family of twelve teddy bears. Each rhyme has a question asked by a teddy bear, which makes it a fun and interactive book for young readers. Apart from conveying beautiful messages of sharing, being different and yet being friends, the rhymes take children through the different seasons in a very novel and charming way. Let us meet Scruff, Puddle, Podge, Rainbow, Naughty, Blossom, Sunshine, Butterfly, Sunset, Autumn, Breeze, and Snowflake, join the discussion, and try doing the things they do.

This book is entertaining, whimsical, and captivating and it makes learning fun and interesting. The author has created the twelve teddy bears using her crochet hook, thereby giving them each a personality of their own, and children will love meeting them. The backdrop where the teddy bears are placed is vibrant, lively, and arresting and gives a good pace and movement to the rhymes. It is a perfect book to introduce to children in classrooms and homes to make learning fun. This book will also introduce readers to rhyming verses and writing short poems.

Which one is your favorite teddy? Which is your favorite color? Which time of the year do you like the most? There a lot of questions that require answers from young readers and I am sure they will have fun figuring out their favorite teddy, color, season, etc. I cannot wait to read the next book to learn more about the Jolly Jangles.
