9780064462174: My Visit to the Zoo (Trophy Picture Books)

Welcome to the Zoo...

How would you like to travel from a tropical rain forest to the African plains, and down into a deep canyon all in one day? Then get ready for a wild trip to the zoo and up close look at all kinds of animals! See snow leopards lurking on a ledge, zebras and ostriches running across the open plains, and a tiger splashing in a stream. Find out everything--from what elephants roll in after their baths to which bird might laugh at your jokes. Come take a visit to an amazing zoo!

Imagine traveling from a lush tropical rain forest, to a deep and
mysterious canyon, to the wide-open African plains—all in one day! In this tour of a modern-day zoo, visitors get to see how animals really live. They’ll learn everything from what elephants like to roll around in after their baths to what’s being done to preserve wildlife. Written and illustrated by the inimitable Aliki, this successor to the highly popular titles My Visit to the Dinosaurs and My Visit to the Aquarium is one of the best ways ever for a young child to visit the zoo.

‘Aliki’s accessible text and lush illustrations bring the animal world to life.’ —School Library Journal

‘A fine picture book.’ —Kirkus Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews:

Aliki (Hello! Good-bye!, 1996, etc.) starts this fine picture book on the endpapers, which feature a tropical greenhouse with a host of labeled butterfly and hummingbird species. The simple first-person narration is by a girl who reluctantly accompanies her cousin to the zoo. She's been to other zoos where the animals seemed sad, but this zoo is different--the animals move about freely in naturalistic habitats. Aliki stresses the important role such zoos play in protecting and preserving endangered species in the fact-filled zoological tour that follows. A world map on the final page shows where each animal of the 80 species mentioned comes from and notes whether it is endangered or vulnerable. The main text moves along smoothly, and for those interested, more detailed information appears in picture captions. The colored pencil illustrations, though somewhat stylized, are lively and give readers a good working knowledge of each animal's appearance and the habitat in which it lives.
