The cutest, cleverest animal alphabet book in years!

Filled with graphically bold and laugh-out-loud animal art, The Zoo I Drew takes children on a bright and bumpy tour of the ABCs!

This is a wonderful romp through the alphabet. With big bold pictures of all sorts of animals and goofy, rhyming text the reader is treated to a good laugh while learning the alphabet and all sorts of animal facts. The entries for "U" and "X" are marvelous. Great read-aloud although I found myself changing some of the text on the fly to make the rhythm work...

The Zoo I Drew is a rhyming ABC book of animals, with pictures of cute and kinda funny lookin' wildlife! My favorite page is for X! Read a zoo today!

This book is so cute. Each letter of the alphabet brings a new animal. The child talkes you through their adventure at the zoo. While the children are learning about the different animals, they are also learning about the different letters. The illustration is very unique. It appears that a child created meaning from the drawing. I would use this book to teach about letters and animals.

I probably would have given this only three stars (the meter is uneven), but my 9-year-olds loved it and I thought the "u" and "x" entries were fun and creative. Very kid-friendly book :)

Great book for an alphabet or zoo themed story time! Big colourful animals and simple text make it a book that keeps their attention.

I think this is reasonably cute, but my 3 year-old boy adores it.
