My Trip to the Zoo stimulates your child's creativity and interest in reading and writing. After a trip to the zoo, you and your child can relive the fun by recording it in your child's own words, drawings, and photographs. The book provides sentence starters that children finish with words describing their personal experiences. The young authors then paste photos or draw pictures to illustrate their stories. Parents or grandparents can help children complete their one-of-a-kind book for a wonderful shared activity.
Working on this Interactive Book about Me helps young and beginning readers (ages 2-8) improve their vocabulary, reading, and writing skills. My Trip to the Zoo also helps children identify groups of animals, understand terms of measurement, and develops their compare-and-contrast skills as they identify zoo animals that are short or tall, noisy or quiet, friendly or scary.
This activity book will bring repeated enjoyment and skill development as your child shares reading the book aloud with you, family members, and friends. And, when your child's reading progresses beyond the level of this book, you will have a unique keepsake of a special event from his or her growing years!
One of the keys to learning to read is motivation. This interactive book, in which the child provides the text and the important images, creates that motivation. It also requires children to think critically, recall and reflect on their experiences, and then recount them in writing - all helpful in developing language skills. Great for all beginning readers and writers, including English language learners and students identified for Title I or special education programs.

K.A. Bye, MS in Reading has taught reading to grades K-12 and college-level students.Review:
A marvelous idea, executed in superb fashion by the multiple Seal winning publishers at Boys Town Press. This interactive series of books are a wonderful way to reinforce various special times throughout the year including celebrations, holidays and other events that form so much of the important memories of childhood. Colorful and cute illustrations fill each book while the print is large and clear. Being able to personalize the book, with drawings or writing makes the books a keepsake and a real source of pride.' --The National Parenting Center
In order to teach a child, you have to enter their view of the world...What a great way to do this! K.A. Bye's interactive books help to bridge the literacy gap. This series not only helps young readers improve their literacy skills, it allows the reader to own the story and 'be the book.' Better yet, the series fosters positive relationship building between adult and child. A must-have for all parents, caregivers and early elementary school teachers alike. --~Julia Cook, M.S., Award Winning Children's Author/Presenter
