PreSchool-Grade 2-- First-time zoo visitors are given a glimpse of a few of the creatures that live there, and regulars are sure to remember with fondness good times spent with favorite animal friends. Rhyming couplets flow easily from beginning to end and complement the double-page illustrations that tell a story of their own. Simple drawings with colored pencils and sepia pen lines capture a child's point of view. Lush greens, warm oranges and browns, cool blues and frosty whites re-create the animals' natural surroundings. In addition, this is a great book to use to introduce primary students to parts of speech and simple sentence structure. Follow it up with Florian's A Beach Day (1990), Nature Walk (1989), and A Year in the Country (1989, all Greenwillow). --Cassie Whetstone, Ridgeley Primary/Middle School, WV
