As morning dawns, the zookeeper makes his rounds, exhorting the animals to wake up, comb their hair, and stand up straight. Soon their human visitors arrive, and the observations begin to flow:
My, what silly things they do, all these creatures at the zoo.
Walking on all kinds of feet, dancing to an inner beat.
Babies riding on their backs, on their bellies, snug in sacks.
Hear the silly sounds they speak, as they howl
and squawk and shriek
But just who is talking about whom?
With a clever twist of text and bright and festive illustrations, this picture book will have children begging for a trip to the zoo. Ages 4 to 8.
