    This is such a fun book. I enjoyed traveling with the adult and her five young charges as they visited the zoo. What's fun is that each child discovers a special animal/exhibit, so he/she stays behind at that zoo location. Counting down from 5 to 0 children, and then counting back up to 5, is a neat way to structure the book. This colorful zoo-themed story is a treat to read. #MSWL #ReadYourWorld

    so, I just read this book to my 5 and 6 year old separately, and it was pretty good.Here are their thoughts. 5 year old girl. Me: So what did you think? "it was so boring! cause all the kids got lost in the zoo! Did you like it? yeah, I liked it. What did you like? when they lost all the kids. So did you like the book or not? yeah, I like the pretty feathers. So, she seemed to like it, even though her positives and negatives were the same thing.She especially liked that on the last page the peacock so, I just read this book to my 5 and 6 year old separately, and it was pretty good.Here are their thoughts. 5 year old girl.

So, she seemed to like it, even though her positives and negatives were the same thing.She especially liked that on the last page the peacock girl had a feather instead of a balloon. 6 year old boy (who read it to me) What did you think? It was funny when the teacher left all the kids. Did you like it? No, because the faces look funny. What was your favourite part? When the teacher was all alone cause it looked weird. So, I'm not sure of my kids conclusions, but they seem to think this was a field trip, and the teacher kept leaving her kids behind. My son read it pretty good, he's in speech therapy but could sound out most of the words, and my daughter thought it was funny. I won this from the goodreads giveaway, and when you see those "no po boxes", it's probably because they use purolator (at least in canada), and it was a huge hassle to pick this up. I wasn't home when they tried to deliver it, so they left a notice telling me to go to a town 12 km away to get it.I don't drive, so that sucked. Overall, ok book.

    Glad that the teacher did not lose any of those kids that went off on their own to the different places

    This is a Goodreads win review. This is the most darling book about 5 children going to the zoo and seeing all the animals. I am going to gift it to my little nephew.
