In Jungle Paradise, Lucas the Lion rules with an iron fist! There is no democracy. Jack the Jackal and Freddie the Fox are roaming about when they see a crowd of people assembled with a lady in front holding a microphone and mouthing words they do not comprehend.

They see an elderly man, so they approach him to discover what is happening. After a brief encounter, the duo names him The Wise Man. Jack the Jackal and Freddie the Fox invite the man to their jungle so he can explain some more to the rest of the animals. Upon arrival, the man politely describes how the human world operates through elections and democracy. The animals demand to adopt the human culture! They want to elect a king of their choice. The Wise Man helps them through the process. Who will be elected king?

I loved how some animals believed in their abilities to be the new leader. Though most of them were boasting of their massive sizes, their courage to stand out amongst the rest was astounding. This aspect encourages kids to believe in themselves. You can give it a shot at being a leader.

The democracy aspect helps children understand better ways of handling situations when they are a team. Someone will always stand out as a better leader, and it is part of life. I loved reading the segments that concerned Lucas the Lion. Even though he faced a chance of not being elected king, he stood tall and bold. No animal was going to intimidate him.

I found no grammatical errors. In this manner, the book is exceptionally well edited. The pictures were amusing, especially when the enormous animals boasted of their big bodies, weight, and abilities. Jack the Jackal and Freddie the Fox stood out the most. Despite their small sizes, they ushered Jungle Paradise into a democratic era. I detected nothing not to like. I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend The Democratic Jungle - The First Election by Bageshwar Verma to kids who enjoy wildlife.

This sounds like a fun book about wildlife. I don't know how much will younger children understand the concept of democracy. In any case, it is nice that every animal has some quality they are proud of.

It will be nice to read how a serious matter such as electing a leader through democracy will be used in the animal world.
