Walking through the Jungle

This kit integrates a range of mixed-ability cross-curricular materials based on the book Walking through the Jungle.

Walking through the Jungle takes children on a whirlwind tour around the habitats of the world, through the jungle to the ocean, up the mountains to the river and the Arctic. As they walk and swim, climb and trek, slip and run, they encounter a whole host of wild animals that roar and growl or snap and howl before chasing them all the way back home! 

The BritLit Primary Kit has been designed specifically for use with Walking through the Jungle, published by Barefoot Books. It was chosen not only for its dynamic language structures and catchy beat, but also for its colourful and captivating illustrations. The kit integrates a range of mixed-ability cross-curricular materials including storytelling tips, interactive language activities and links to supplementary online resources.

The activities are great and everything's ok. I'd appreciate the great effort put into this and I will use it with students but I can't find the retold story.

Can you please tell me where from  I can  download the story (in its actual words) ?What I need is the synopsis.
