This book could be used to motivate children to like school. Sammy the Seal leaves the zoo to enjoy school for a day. The children will think school is fun because Sammy the Seal thought so. This would be a book for the lower levels of elementary education.

Good story for a early reader the story is a little long for a child just starting to read, however it is a cute story and the pictures help you understand the story.

Sammy the seal likes life at the zoo, but he wants to see what things are like outside. He enjoys himself, especially at school, but in the end he is happy to go home to the zoo.

My 3-year-old loves the book and the story is helping him learn to read and identify letters. Sammy the Seal has taught us all about "S" words, and we are working on a number of others too! Great book!

My 2 year old son loves Sammy the Seal. We read it a couple of times before bed every night. He likes the big pictures of the other zoo animals and has asks a lot of questions about what all the people are doing once Sammy gets to the City.

My 2 1/2 year old boys love this book. We've read it many times and we'll definitely read it many more times to come.

My 13yr old daughter was with myself and my sister in the emergency room of the hospital waiting to see the doctor for an exam that no female should ever have to wait for. My sister picked up this book and started to read it out loud to my daughter and it took away some of the tension that she was feeling. Ever since that day she has been looking for a copy of this book to have for herself so that she can hold it in the trying times to come.
