Zoo Books!

Some of our favorite zoo books! These are great books about the zoo for children 2 years old and up. When reading to a group of 2 year olds the length of the book is really important, the content and how you read the book will really affect whether or not you can keep their attention. Read with emotion, read like you are really enjoying the book and be excited!
This book was a favorite of mine as a child, its about the zoo, and the circus. Its a great book for learning your colors and it has many other hidden themes in it also.


Bears! Bears! Bears!
Bob Barner Books http://www.bobbarner.com/ are awesome, this is a great book introducing little ones to all the different kinds of bears that are in the world. Its a great science book for preschoolers of all ages, it's short and simple enough for the 2 year olds to enjoy too.

A silly version of the classic the "Wheels om the Bus". What kid can resist any version of the wheels on the bus.The Seals on the Bus


This is a very sweet book about animals and all he animals are shaped like hearts, its a book about not only zoo animals but about all the different traits in a person. Is you heart Silly as a seal? Brave as a Lion? Hungry as a hippo? This book is also a great inspiration source for art projects for animals and valentines day.http://www.amazon.com/Heart-Like-Zoo-Michael-Hall

To the tune of the classic "Over in the Meadow" this is a fun jungle version!
