You will love this book as well as "Edwina the Emu". What a fun and funny story. I have read this to my kindergarten class as well as my own children. This book is captivating and fun. The sing song words will get everyone reading along and you will find the illustrations exciting and cute. The story is of Edward trying to determine what kind of animal he would like to be in the zoo because nobody visits the emu cage. This is one of the cutest stories I own and you will enjoy this book too!
I read this book in another teachers classroom and I had to add it to my collection. It may be similar to other stories but I like the originality of using an Emu and my kids like the story and the pictures.
An adorable book for building self esteem. Full of wonderful language that will tickle the ear. Appeals to boys. Don't forget to follow up with Edwina.
As a Kindergarten teacher, I brought this book back from Australia a couple of years ago. My students LOVED it. And now, my grandchildren can't get enough of it. Its a perfect storybook with beautiful illustrations. I'm ordering spare copies for gifts.
