When our narrator thinks of love, s/he thinks of something an animal in the zoo loves, too.
Beautiful, creative illustrations, simple pleasures, and rhyme make this a fun book to share and explore with children.
Our daughter rushed through the reading (there is only one phrase on every 2-page spread) so that she could find all of the hearts the animals were made of.
This is a lovely, fun book. The colors are bright and the illustrations are simple enough to share with very young children, yet the heart-embedded animals make it engaging and fun for older children, too. This isn't billed as an easy reader, but it could definitely be one.
Simple images, rhyming text and pages filled with hearts teach kids about what love means.
There is a lot you can do with this book, from object and color identification to talking about animals. The cover says there are more than 300 hearts int he book ... find and count them, either page by page or in total. The last page has all of the animals on a shelf, so you can test your reader's comprehension by asking about that animal's love.
