Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hoban offers preschoolers an outstanding pictorial introduction to the zoo. Ages 3-6. (April)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 A pleasing, small portfolio of familiar zoo animals. The omission of a gorilla or chimpanzee is puzzling, but never mind. Each animal is given splendid, full-color attention on its own black-framed page. Facing is its name in large, white print along with a three-word tag. ``Big /white /growls'' describes the polar bear, just as most young children would. These tags make nice riddles or beginnings for a child's additional description. On the final page, a chart notes natural geographical location as well as what they eat. For the most part, the photographs are standard zoo fare, but a few are truly different and amusing. The pleasures of naming and describing are discovered and practiced early on in childhood, and Hoban's new photographic book adds to these delights like few others. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.
