Wild About Books

Summary:

Who knew what would happen at the zoo when Molly McGrew opened up her bookmobile and a story or two!


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The book is enjoyable read after read (and you'll have plenty). This is Dr. Seuss goes to the Zoo!

Content Awareness Factors:

Absolutely none.


Little Kid Reaction

Our preschooler has requested a reading and independently "read" this book for a full year (and counting)! With every read, there is laughter and silliness to go with the new things "spotted" on the pages.

Parent Reaction

This is so much fun … even after a year's time. The rhyming and alliteration keep it fresh, as do the imitated antics of the various characters.

Type of Book:
This is a rhyming picture book about animals who learn to love reading.
Educational Themes:

The book celebrates reading and creates ways for parents to introduce writing, encourage a trip to the library (or bookmobile) or zoo; talk about caring for books. It's also a great way to help pre-readers with practicing (and expanding on) sounds.
