Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Each car of a zoo-bound train contains a different number of vibrant, stylized animals; their destination is depicted in a fold-out finale. Ages 3-7. (July)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Hurry up and get aboard the train. A collection of animals ranging from one very large elephant to five pairs of birds is headed for the zoo. As each number and the corresponding number of animals is introduced, another car is added to the train running along the bottom of the page. Once at their destination, the cars are emptied and the animals take up residence at the zoo. Transformed into a board book, Carle's delightful collages are still appealing and kids will have fun naming the animals, counting them, and spotting that little mouse that appears in every scene. 1996 (orig.
