In this humorous twist on a visit to the zoo, just who has the more interesting view? As morning dawns, the zookeeper makes his rounds, exhorting the animals to wake up, comb their hair, and stand up straight. Soon their human visitors arrive, and the observations begin to flow:
My, what silly things they do, all these creatures at the zoo. Walking on all kinds of feet, dancing to an inner beat. Babies riding on their backs, on their bellies, snug in sacks. Hear the silly sounds they speak, as they howl and squawk and shriek!
But just who is talking about whom? With a clever twist of text and bright and festive illustrations, this picture book will have children begging for a trip to the zoo. Ages 4-8.

Lisa E. (From Amazon) 5.0 out of 5 starsBananas Over This Cute Zoo Book Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2019 Verified Purchase Totally bananas over this book! Super cute book for young children. My preschoolers loved it. Not a lot of text and bright vivid colors kept them highly engaged! Loved the different twist this book had about looking at the people who came to the zoo instead of the typical people looking at the animals.
Eric Schrotenboer (From Amazon) 5.0 out of 5 starsSo much fun!!! Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2021 The View at the Zoo is such a fun, colorful, and playful book. This book delightfully flips the view at the zoo from the visitors to the animals. When we read this book, our kids laugh out loud and have so much fun finding the mischievous monkey that is on every page. This is a must have for every child's library.
Nekea M. 5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic and creative Reviewed in the United States on July 7, 2021 Fantastic book! Creative, well-written and loved by kids and adults. Love that the twist is that the view is actually from the animals perspective, instead of the humans. All of my kids loved this book and ask to read it over and over!
