Read with a 9-year-old girl.
Borrow, at least. If you have ever been (or are planning to go) to the Central Park Zoo. This is a buy.
Our daughter loved looking at the pages and all of the activity. She laughed at Milo, but also guessed what was going to happen.
This is a cute story. The rhyme is spot on and done VERY WELL. The illustrations are colorful and active enough to keep very young listeners busy while you read the text.
Great illustrations and one of kids' favorite animals combine in a sweet story to read again and again.
It's a quibble, but when describing the clock, the author talks about "the penguin banging his drum." Yet that is never depicted in any of the illustrations. My daughter looked everywhere for that - and I'm sure she's not the only one.
