I See Paris, I See France...

Now that spring break and Easter vacation are over it's time for me to get back to work on the book reviews. The good news is I read a lot. So I have plenty to review.

"The Underpants Zoo"
By Brian Sendelbach
For Ages 3 - 7
There's a new zoo in town and you've never seen anything like it. There are more than zany animals that keep this tale fun for all. Rated 3.5 (humor, rhyme, underwear)
It's ridiculous and absurd. All the animals are in underwear. Hippos have hearts on their underpants, zebras have stars. What kind of underwear does a lion wear? How about a penguin? Sendelbach keeps this silly story moving with easy to read rhymes and fun illustrations. Kids will giggle with delight as ants join the party. This one is easy to enjoy as a read-aloud, especially with emerging readers.
