    K picked this book up from his public library.
    This is a perfect book to read to the younger kids on up. K is 8 and loved the book because it had animals from the zoo. It is easy to read for those that are learning to read or are at the stage 1 to 2 level reading books. The pictures are colorful and bright and go great with the story. Rhyming on every page, which makes it fun to read along with counting on many of each animal is at the zoo!

    Fun counting book!

    A boy and his grandpa visit the zoo together in this fun rhyming book. They count the animals as they go including a black bear, parrots, penguins, and lions. Preschool through early elementary aged children will enjoy this counting book. The illustrations were fun and will be enjoyable for young children.

    I recommend this book for the elementary classroom library.

    My favorite two-year-old keeps asking me to read TWO AT THE ZOO over and over. He loves the spiders, eagles, alligators, penguins and other colorful animals.

    Two at the Zoo is a delightful rhyming counting book about a grandfather taking his grandson to the zoo. The verse is so natural and fun to read that kids will want to hear it again and again and AGAIN!

    I recently went to a book signing by Danna Smith for Two at the Zoo and a local zoo had brought in a tarantula. Danna held the tarantula, its furry legs crawling across her gloved hand. Kids and adults snapped pictures and leaned close to look. Danna read her book and signed many copies. She was raised in a home where having snakes, skunks and deer around was normal. Her father still has hundreds of snakes and trains falcons. Writing about wild animals comes naturally to her--as does beautiful rhyming words.

    Two at the Zoo would make a great Father's Day Gift as well as a wonderful read aloud to any child who loved animals and counting. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
