This is a very imaginative picture book for kids 3 to 8 about imaginatively dreaming. Kids have an amazing imagination and this book will help kids to develop these talents even more. So many kids would like to imaginatively be a particular animal at the zoo. Zaring’s book encourages kids of all ages to imagine which animal they would like to be in their imagination.
There are so many different kinds of animals at the zoo. There are monkeys, giraffes, bears, zebras, tigers, elephants, and lions, just to name a few. All of these animals at the zoo are graced in different colours, shapes, and sizes and they all have unique things that they can do. In addition, all these animals have different functions and roles.
This book transports children to the zoo. Jessica Barlup’s illustrations are bright and bold. The illustrations are so realistic that they inspire kids to dream about all the animals at the zoo even before they get there. And who knows, perhaps the next time your child goes to the zoo, (s)he will be looking forward to seeing all the animals there so that (s)he can decide which animal she can dream of becoming.
