The rhythm of the language invites any age child to listen. I’m puzzled as to the age which would actually engage with the narrative but perhaps 5. The humor is delightful for any adult who must reread a book countless times. ( )

This book tells a story about the animals at the zoo and how much they love to read. Each page has multiple rhymes in it as it tells the story. The story talks about how animals love to read but they do not know how to treat the books until the end.
USES: To teach kids how we treat books and to teach about writing rhymes. ( )

Epigraph
When you visit the zoo now, you surely won't mind

If the animals seem just a bit hard to find --

They are sug in their niches, their nests, and their nooks,

Going wild, simply wild, about wonderful books.
Dedication
This book is for our favorite doctor, artist, poet, fun concocter: Theodor Seuss Geisel, 1904-1991. -- Judy Sierra and Marc Brown
First words
It all started the summer of 2002,

When the Springfield librarian, Molly McGrew,

By mistake drove her bookmobile into the zoo.
