Publisher's Write-Up

Have you ever been to a zoo where the elephants and ants play leap frog together and the zebras cook burgers and fries? What about goldfish playing guitars and goats washing the visitors’ cars? I’m assuming you’ve never seen tigers jump rope or a polar bear wear pink tennis shoes? Of course you haven’t because there is only one zoo where animals behave this way-the Quirky Kids’ Zoo. Did I mention the gopher races and the giraffes playing hopscotch? Guess not. Well, some things you’ll just have to see for yourself. So, grab Mom and Dad and jump in the car and head over to the Quirky Kids’ Zoo for an adventure you won’t soon forget.

Hi! Welcome to a different kind of zoo. We’re going to see some strange sights. What’s that you say? What kind of strange sights? Well never fear, there’s nothing scary here.

Do you have you camera ready? You can take pictures of different things here. What’s different here? Look over there; did you ever see porcupines with fur so soft? Let’s walk down this walk. Look over there. See the elephants playing leapfrog with the ants? See the gorillas roller skating? There’s a lot to take pictures of in this quirky zoo!

Children and adults both will love this book by Pat Brannon. Children will love laugh at the quirky kids’ zoo’s inhabitants. They will love the fact that they can help read the book by counting. Adults will love the rhyming story because it teaches kids to count from one to twenty five. Both parents and children will love the imaginative and silly antics (like gardening kangaroos) of the inhabitants. This interactive book makes reading time fun!

The brightly painted illustrations by Jimena Pinto-Kroujiline brings this delightful rhyming story to life.

I loved reviewing this children’s book and highly recommend it. It’s so imaginative and just a pleasure to read. From beginning to end, the Quirky Kids Zoo kept a smile on my face! I have to award this entertaining book 9/10!
