There are a lot of animal books out there. There are a lot of zoo books out there. There are very few of said books that do it with this kind of ingenuity. The first time you read the lines "Flamingos know they are strange and beautiful and play at symmetry" to your 3 year old, you know you have stumbled on to a rare gem.

Will they know what symmetry is? Probably not, but you do -- and that is what is so great about this simple book. Everyone gets to enjoy the book, on whatever level they can appreciate it for.

After taking our twin 2 1/2 year old grandson's to the zoo, we unsuccessfully look at the zoo gift shop for a book that would highlight animals that we had seen on that visit. Hard to imagine, but there were non. Many of the books dealt with one animal not a cross range. Therefore, returning home, I searched out this book by Bruno Munari. It is excellent and my daughter and the twins are very happy with my choice.

I'm so glad I purchased this book. The art is wonderful and the descriptions of the animals are just a little cheeky. Both my 1.5 year old and my 3 year old love this book. It is requested for storytime often.

The best part is the line about the zebra's striped pajamas. Really great illustrations.

It's not your traditional children's book--and I love that! As an adult I find it entertaining. There are many pages I find unique to children's book writing in terms of the words and different animals in the book. However, there are some pages that seem more similar to your standard zoo book/alphabet book. One thing is for sure is you will be the only one with this book at a baby shower.

We had bought Munari's ABC book previously and needed an animal book too, so I got this. The illustrations are lovely. Some of the text is a bit odd and awkward sounding, but we are focusing on the pictures for now.

The illustrations, vocabulary, and simplicity of this zoo-based alphabet book are superb. I give this as a gift to new parents because we love it so much at our house.

Chosen for my grandson tho it is not quite for his age.

I have a stack of books which are not board books (those I buy him now) which I pile on one closet shelf in my office. Waiting for him now are The Little House, Make Way for Ducklings, Blueberries for Sal, Curious George, Angus and the Ducks, some of the lovely books illustrated and autographed by my friend Will Hillenbrand, Ferdinand the Bull by Munro Leaf, The Golden Egg, Also don't forget A Child's Garden of Verses byRobert Louis Stevenson, Little Black Sambo, by Helen Bannerman, Bunny Cakes, and the Five Chinese Brothers (one who could stretch and stretch his legs)! Those title should be underscored ...

The three-year old twins I purchased the book for loved it!
They know all the animals in the book already.

I bought this last year for my daughter's 4th birthday. She loves books - being read to and flipping through herself. I thought this would be a good one since it's mainly drawings. But it has not become her (or my) favorites. It's big and cumbersome and not as interesting as I was hoping. The drawings are nice but don't really tell much of a story. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a child who loves zoos.
