The Secret Zoo by Bryan Chick

This product was recommended by Dhanya G. from Parenting Passage

This book contains all the elements to capture young minds and keep them interested. The short chapters make it a perfect choice for bedtime reading. It is the first book in the series so once you finish you can move onto the next.

If I ran the Zoo by Dr. Seuss

This product was recommended by Muhammad Mateen Khan from PureVPN

If I Ran the Zoo is a non-narrative paean to unbridled childhood imagination. A young tyke, Gerald McGrew, is unimpressed by everyday lions and tigers, so he dreams up his own menagerie, which gets wilder and more ambitious by the page. If McElligot boasted some lavish watercolors, Zoo stays with Seuss’s trademark pen and ink, with occasional fill-in colors. The whimsy factor of Zoo however, is kicked up several notches beyond the Pool. The vocabulary level is that of the better known Horton Hears a Who!, two books down the road.

Wild About Books By Judy Sierra

This product was recommended by Melanie Musson from 4AutoInsuranceQuote

This cleverly written and beautifully illustrated book about books being read by animals in the zoo will be one you may read so often you memorize it. It introduces children to animals and their habitats and it’s all written in metered rhymes that are fun to read. Not only does this book help children learn about zoos, but it also fosters a love for reading.

Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andrea

This product was recommended by L. Elizabeth Forry from ElizabethForry

This book isn’t technically about zoos, but it is about animals, specifically those that live in Africa. I have loved this book ever since I first read it as an assistant preschool teacher. Not only does it identify several different types of animals, but more importantly, it teaches children about acceptance of those who seem different and how powerful words can be.
