Synopsis: Zoo keeper brings his work home with him, wife brings it back.
for parents. The only text is dialogue (the zoo keeper saying good
night to various animals as he prepares to head home), but the pictures tell
a story of sticky simian fingers, an escape from cages, and a little too
much togetherness. As usual, the protagonist's wife (who looks at least
as tired as most new parents feel) has to take matters into her own hands.
At this stage, we read the pictures aloud, as well as the text, so Chloe won't
miss out on these complexities.
Very entertaining for Chloe, since she loves hearing about animals and deception (and she can't help but chortle along with her parents).
A very easy book to read when Chloe is active and turning pages herself, since the text is simple.
Visual Appeal (i.e., how entrancing
Chloe finds it while turning the pages herself with nothing read to her):
Great. Cute pictures of animals in very vivid colors.
Tooth-appeal: Nibbled, but not gnawed.
