{Synopsis} – There's an animal strike at the zoo!

oh no, oh my!

What's a zookeeper to do when the lions and tigers and bears refuse to roar and prowl and growl? And when little Sue, who has been waiting all year for this trip to the zoo, enters the gate, will the animals decide to give their strike a break?

Karma Wilson's fun, playful text paired with Margaret Spengler's bright and lively pastels create an unforgettable, irresistible zoo of chaos and fun.

{My thoughts} – This book was absolutely adorable. I loved the graphics, I loved the cute little story. It was a wonderful book. The graphics match the story nicely, and the story flows even nicer. I happen to be a fan of the zoo, jungle and well animals in general, but I happen to have a soft spot for giraffes. There were giraffes in the book and they looked just wonderful! EEEK!

I think that any child that enjoys animals will enjoy this book. It is a wonderful story, it isn’t to terribly long and most first graders should be able to mostly read it on their own! My youngest brought it home as his home reader and I loved it so much I decided to review it!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
