What a cute little story about a trip to the zoo! I liked that it rhymed throughout the story as well. I was impressed with how specific the author went with the type of animals they saw. Instead of “birds” it was “American Black vulture”. I thought the story was engaging, asking the reader to count, identify, and answer other questions.

I thought the illustrations were just ok. Probably could have been a bit better, in my opinion.

Very informative book about animals that children will love. The types of animals are written in bold to make it easier to see them. The book talks about different types of animals to help to reader learn. The illustrations are beautiful and fit the story very well. Great book!

A cute and colorful book for parents to teach their kids about animals and the zoo. Many interactive questions to help with things like counting, observational skills and other thought provoking questions kids would love to answer.

Good, simple book about a family going to the zoo, seeing animals, and having fun. Nothing extraordinary but good for the young ones. There are some interactive activities in the book also. A pleasant break, appropriate ofr young kids, a good introduction to the zoo and the animals who live there.

I read this book with my five-year-old daughter and we really enjoyed it

The story was easy to follow and my daughter was able to read the book to me which she really enjoyed as it helps her get more involved

The illustrations for the book were nice and simple, they brought the story to life. I liked the layout of the book and that the book does engage the reader too which is a great touch

It is 4 stars from me for this one, highly recommended and a fun read!

Reina, her little brother Mom and Dad and two of her friends spend the day at the zoo. I like the animal names are in bold so you can further research about them. This book is in rhyme form but has an added bonus of it being interactive to engage in conversation with your children while reading it. Reins starts at the birds, goes to the insects and reptiles and ends up at the mammals. I like that the added information on the species is included and bigger words are explained. The illustrations are vivid and pleasing to look at. I especially like some of the animals facial expressions. Thank you to the author for enforcing to listen to the zoo personnel and parents for children to stay safe. I highly recommend this book for older toddlers and early elementary levels for learning and interactive parent time.

As far as picture books go, this is a very fun one. I love rhyming children's books.
Children loves zoo and animals so that's such a great setting already. And the illustrations are gorgeous and recognizable.
