Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
As the title suggests, this book is modeled after the familiar "‘Twas the Night Before Christmas" tale. Anyone who liked the Christmas tale is sure to like this playful, rhyming story that goes through the process of getting the zoo ready for opening day. An array of animals—including flamingoes, monkeys, llamas, giraffes, and meercats—carry out some fun antics while the zookeepers prepare for the big day. Anticipation mounts throughout and ends with the arrival of a busload of kids eager to see the animals. Readers and listeners can gather an amazing amount of animal information from the text. They can learn about how the animals look, feed, and act as well as something about their habitats. After a few reads, youngsters will be able to participate in reading some of the text that fits well into the sing-song rhyming pattern. Colorful, humorous illustrations enhance the story, and plenty of extras are available for teachers and parents in the "Creative Mind" section at the back of the book. It includes a matching activity, animal facts, and information about zookeepers. This book will fit well as a supplement for science, social studies, and language lessons.

    Fun reading

    I read this book to my granddaughter and she loved it. She smiled and laughed as I read the book to her. Even I learned new information about some of the animals that I did not know before. Great story line, illustrations and animal facts.
