When a bird flies into an exhibit of dinosaurs, the museum walls and the bones begin to change to prehistoric times. The amazing fantasy comes full circle to a satisfying conclusion. Slowly and quietly on this particular Tuesday, a few fat frogs begin hovering over a swamp, riding lily pads like magic carpets. Gradually, the flying fleet grows in momentum and number, sailing over the countryside and into an unsuspecting town. Readers are encouraged to tell the story of a brave farm girl who provides food to someone who has escaped in this sophisticated, expressive, wordless book.
Inspired by family stories, the author allows adults to fill in the historical detail while children recognize the story's power. No words are needed to share a child's seaside adventure as she plays with the waves, is knocked down by one, and then discovers the sea's gifts brought to shore by the wave. Softly lined wash in a limited color palette evoke a summer afternoon on the beach.
A sly walrus evades the zookeeper, all the while hiding in plain sight: at a lunch counter, in a window display, and many equally obvious and silly places. After taking a swimming prize, the walrus returns to the zoo. Flat forms augment the understated comedy of this wordless tale. A girl is lost in a snowstorm. A wolf cub is lost, too. How will they find their way home? Paintings rich with feeling tell this satisfying, wordless story of friendship and trust. Proceeds from the sale of books purchased at Amazon. Thank you!

For students in 3rd-5th grade can each get assigned a There's A Zoo in Room 22, is a wonderful, fun children's poetry book of alphabet rhymes. For students in 3rd-5th grade can each get assigned a letter of the alphabet and make up their own class pet starting with the letter they get and write a poem about their pet. For younger grades K-2nd, the students can also get assigned a letter of the alphabet and make up a pet that starts with the letter they get, but instead of doing a poem they can draw a picture of their class pet and just write adjectives around it that they want to use to describe their imaginary classroom creature.
Feb 17, Allie rated it liked it. This book instantly caught my attention when I was reading it. This poem book goes letter by letter through the alphabet. Each letter gets a poem and they are great! Each poem is not just starting with the letter it is assigned to. For example 'Umbrella Bird' is for the letter U. The poems are short but really fun to read. I would use this book as a model text for writing poems. You can assign each student a letter or just let them read this book about how to write a poem about something silly.
I would select one or two poems to read aloud from this book. I would not read the whole book in one sitting, the students will get restless. This book would even work in kindergarten, when you are talking about letters. You could try and find sight words in these poems and talk about punctuation and rhyming.
I would recommend this book to K-3 teachers. For the older kids I would have this out for reading or to use as a mentor text.
Feb 15, Jeanette Yanez rated it it was amazing. I not only like the variety of animals, most of which would be horrible pets, but also the assonance throughout the story. I think this story was much easier to read because it was an easier poem to read. This book is a straight forward poem where you know that the last word in each line will rhyme, which makes reading and comprehension easier to read.
This book is a creative approach to poetry and reading at a higher level, I LOVED this book most likely because my favorite song is the alphabet. This book is a creative approach to poetry and reading at a higher level, it is an easy read but also challenges the reader to read in a differnt manner that may have never been seen before.

Camp, M. Miss Darling's class has a class pet Some of the pets are common animals cat, mouse, guinea pig while others are more peculiar octopus, zorilla, vulture. Each pet is described in a brief, silly, almost poem-like rhyming verse. Illustrations are bright, filled with action, and just as humorous as the text. Fun read aloud for younger children. Oct 14, Joanie rated it really liked it Shelves: abc-alphabet , animals , rhyming.
Oh, Miss Darling, what a clever teacher! The students asked for a class pet, and she offered them an alphabet pet. They went through the alphabet, and named each animal that came to visit their class. Perhaps if a teacher is considering bringing a class pet, this will be a fun book to prep the class for it. Aside from it being a corky alphabet book, it's also great for identifying rhyming words. Mar 24, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: kid-s-books. Very popular while at our house.
