    Hundreds of hearts come together to shape some animals both familiar and exotic in this rhyming romp through the various phases of a child's heart before they retire after a busy day (as busy as a zookeeper's even!).

    My Heart is Like a Zoo (2010) by Michael Hall introduces children to a variety of new concepts beyond emotions and feelings. The varied palette for both animals and backgrounds can introduce colors as easily as the animals themselves can be used for a counting exercise. Hall uses hearts and the occasional circle or rectangle to create all of the artwork inviting children to identify the various shapes and try to make some shape animals of their own. The large text and boldly colored artwork carry wide appeal as do Hall's clever turns of phrase about steady yaks and happy hippos.

    And, of course, as the cover shows very nicely the book is totally adorable! Hall's artwork and writing is fantastic and elevates what could have been a twee, simple book into a complex and entertaining picture book for readers of all ages.

    An attractive, versatile book My Heart is Like a Zoo is guaranteed to become a story time favorite.

    My Heart is Like a Zoo

    My students loved this book. We read it as a class and we spent several minutes on each page trying to count how many hearts were in each animal. One of my favorite responses after reading a story is "Again". This book is one of those books.
