Two for the Zoo

Smith, Danna. Two for the Zoo: A Counting Book. Illus. Valeria Petrone. New York: Clarion, 2009.

One day, a boy takes his grandpa to the zoo. They see many animals engaged in their various habits.

What I thought: What a delightful book! The rhyming is subtle, but really draws the reader into the story. The illustrations are lovely--so bright and colorful. I want to read more by this author.

Story Time Idea: On July 1, the 1st zoo in the US opened. This book would be perfect to use in a story time celebrating that anniversary.
