What happens when a monkey, condor, puffin, cockatoo, and other zoo animals somehow take over the controls of a rocket? Well, they zoom off to the moon, of course!
Zoo Zoom is a playful book, full of animals, space, and energetic poetic lines. I recommend this book for those looking for a book that introduces kids to a variety of animals (not just the traditional cow or dog) and language play. Parents and teachers can definitely have a lot of fun reading this aloud to kids! And Macky Pamintuan’s vibrant illustrations really contribute to the book’s energy.
The book has a good premise (and one that I think kids, including many of my friends’ kids, will enjoy) but I think the book needs something else for it to be one that kids and adults absolutely adore.
