What's New at the Zoo? by Suzanne Slade

(Subtitle: An Animal Adding Adventure)

A visit to the zoo becomes a numerical adventure. Rhyming word problems about the animals need solutions. How many animals are at the zoo? Read your way through and solve the problems to get the final count.

What I thought: A fun and educational book. Not only does it teach adding skills, readers also learn about the different zoo animals. The illustrations were realistic. I liked the page borders. They added definition and interest.

Story Time Themes: Numbers, Counting, Baby Sit & Sign emphasis on numbers
