National Zoo Keeper Week Children's Books Review & Giveaway

*I received  free products for review purpose. I did not receive any compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are not always positive, but they are my personal and honest opinions. Other people's views and experiences with the product or products might be different from mine.



The Zoo is Closed Today written by Evelyn Beilenson, illustrated by Anne Kennedy:

It was a warm sunny day
with not much to do.
So Sue and John walked
to the Kalamazoo.

But when John and Sue arrive at the zoo, they are in for a big surprise! What is wrong with all of the animals? From Edward the elephant to Marcel the monkey, the animals have tummy aches and toothaches, runny noses and sore throats. Pete the zookeeper can barely keep up with taking care of them and has to close the zoo. And the next day, John and Sue are in for an even bigger surprise! This charming tale, illustrated with humor and warmth, demonstrates the value of sweet friendship.

At The Zoo Scratch & Sketch: An Art Activity Book for Animal Lovers by Lee Nemmers, illustrated by Martha Day Zschock

This fun and easy Trace-Along art activity book allows budding artists (5 and up) to use the wooden drawing tool enclosed to trace the white outlines of favorite animals on black-coated scratch art pages. Kids will be delighted to see lions, tigers, bears, seals, and more come alive in swirls of colors and glittery foil! They can also use the sketch pages in the back to draw their own pictures of favorite animals. At the Zoo Scratch & Sketch Art Activity Book includes a wooden stylus for drawing on black-coated paper to reveal glittering, gleaming colors beneath, wire-o-bound hardcover binding and 20 scratch off, 20 illustrated and 20 sketch pages. 

My kids love these books. At the Zoo Scratch & Sketch is a great book that keeps my 8 year old daughter entertained for hours. The activity section of the book is fun for her to do, and she has been reading it to her baby brother. The Zoo is Closed Today is a cute book too. It is about how the animals at the zoo were sick so John and Sue did not get to see the animals there while they visited. But, when the animals got better, the kids were sick, so the animals visited John and Sue instead. 

To help my readers celebrate National Zoo Keeper Week, July 20-26, Peter Pauper Press is offering a giveaway opportunity that celebrates zoos as well as zoo keepers and their dedication to animal care, conservation and education. One of my lucky readers will receive the same books we received to review as giveaway prizes. This giveaway ends on August 1st, 2014.
