Review

Visiting the zoo is one of the most fun activities enjoyed by young children, but when a visit to the zoo isn’t possible, reading this book is the closest you can get. Lots of pictures, illustrations, and quick facts are given about almost 20 different animals. Each photo is life-size, so that readers can get a sense of scale regarding the different animals. The facts are presented in a fun, graphical way and vary slightly from creature to creature, so the reader isn’t seeing the exact kind of information for each animal. Although the book doesn’t give enough detailed information to base a research paper off of, it is a wonderful experience for younger children to learn a little more about some of the creatures that inhabit their world. Some of the animals covered are familiar, while others, like the tapir, may be new to most readers. Originally written in Japanese, this photo-filled zoo adventure provides an experience of fun for all young children. Recommended. Kaitlin Start, Centennial Library Intern.
