If you have two hungry pandas who are eating a bamboo lunch and they are joined by one cub, how many pandas are there to crunch and munch? Children love to look at pictures of animals, so what a wonderful way to introduce them to both the animals themselves, such as elephants, pea fowl, monkeys, boas, brown bears, kangaroos, zebras, giraffes, penguins, and fruit bats, and to basic adding facts too! Suzanne Slade's rhyming text combines with Joan Waites's realistic illustrations to take youngsters on a trip through the zoo not only to learn all about the animals but also to count them. As usual with Sylvan Dell books, four pages in the back have further information "For Creative Minds" that include more material on addition and an animal matching activity. There are also related websites, interactive quizzes, and teaching activities on Sylvan Dell's website to help parents and teachers. What's New at the Zoo is certainly an animal adding adventure.
