High brow text for a low brow audience

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.
