The Jungle Book
Look at the pictures given below and talk about their habitat (living place, food, family, etc.)
A. Every living organism has- a habitat. Habitats vary greatly from organism to organism, because all living things have different needs for survival. A human being needs a beautiful house to live in. He needs good healthy food and a loving family around him. Most people prefer to live in cities.
B. Animals like Tigers, Lions and Monkeys live in the forests or jungles. They are happy to be in their habitat instead of being caught and kept in zoos. Lions live generally in western India and African Savannah, where the forest is not so dense. These grasslands invite a lot of herbivores to come there and be hunted by the lions. Gorillas thrive in the tropical and sub-tropical forests that run along the equatorial belt. Abundant and green vegetation is the main characteristic of the gorilla habitat. Gorillas form a family of 15-20 consisting of adults and kids and live peacefully.
The Jungle Book was written by Rudyard Kipling. The book has attracted audiences of all ages for its plot structure and characters. Children especially enjoy this story as it deals with the early childhood of a boy in the midst of wild animals in the forest.
