Kindergarten-Grade 3. Aliki opens the gates to the Zoological Conservation Park, a spacious, wooded zoo with outdoor habitats for animals. As the young narrator and her cousin wander through the exhibits, the text and illustrations deliver information about the habitats and physical and social characteristics of the various animals they see. Sweeping, double- and single-page paintings of scenes from the zoo are interspersed with boxed, close-up looks at some of the plants and animals. All are labeled with species names and country of origin. The children visit the noisy tropical rain forest, take a ride on the monorail through the open plains to see the large herd animals, view myriad birds at the aviary, and pet young animals at the Children's Zoo. A color-coded chart containing a world map shows the habitats of different animals, tells whether or not they are endangered, and lists the page where they can be found. Throughout the narrative, the park is depicted as a sanctuary for wildlife and an active participant in conservation. This book is a "must read" before a class visit to the local zoo. Aliki's accessible text and lush illustrations bring the animal world to life.?Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
