Zoo-Lookingby Published 01 Jan 1995
Best-selling author Mem Fox celebrates a special father-daughter day in this visually stunning picture bookSpend a day at the zoo. There's so much to see: the tiger with the stripes across its back, the panther with its coat of shiny black, the zebra whose tail goes whack!
The rhythmic text by Men Fox is filled with surprises and reflects all the playfulness and warmth found in family relationships. The texture and glowing colors of Candace Whitman's torn paper collages bring all the animals, exotic and familiar, to life.
On a visit to the zoo a child looks at the animals and they look back. The story is written in verse and along the way there are lots of adjectives, verbs, and adverbs that are fun to share. Invite children to say these new words.
There's a GIRAFFE, a PANTHER, a TIGER, a SNAKE, a PENGUIN, a MONKEY, an OSTRICH, a ZEBRA, a KOALA, a BEAR, a GORILLA, a CAMEL, and an ELEPHANT.
This is a book about a girl who goes to the zoo. I though that the story itself was ok.... but I would definitely use this book in my class to teach about different writing crafting techniques. The author uses a lot of hyphenated words so I would teach about hyphens and also repeats phrases a lot throughout the story.
In this book, we meet a girl who visits the zoo. She sees all these animals and they are looking back at her also. This book had repeating lines on every other page. I liked how the author did that and I didn't notice the pattern immediately, but I would encourage students to use this craft.
This book is about a girl that goes to the zoo and looks at the animals. It is a great book to use for the students that are learning their sight words like look, at, the, it, and, to, a. It is a very easy read and the students will enjoy it because of the illustrations.
Not overly impressed with this book. We adore the book "Time for Bed" by Mem Fox, so I hoped we'd enjoy this just as much. The narrative is rhyming, but just not that engaging and the illustrations are just fuzzy, not bad, but not great either.
