PreSchool-Gr2-- Leslie visits the zoo every Saturday, but her mother is unaware that as her daughter talks with the animals' keepers, she offers to take in the animals "if anything ever goes wrong at the zoo." When heavy rains cause flooding, the keepers remember Leslie's offer and escort their charges to her house. Her bewildered mother grants them refuge, but reminds Leslie to check first before inviting friends over the next time. A crisp and conversational text makes this a great choice for reading aloud, and children will be quick to anticipate the animals' arrival. Dyer's spirited watercolors skillfully capture the understated humor and add sparkle to a winning tale. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX

From Kirkus Reviews
Every Saturday, Leslie makes an eponymous offer to one of the zookeepers: ``...you can send the zebras to my house.'' They promise to remember but aren't encouraging (``Oh, no...Monkeys...need things to swing on''). Then something does go wrong--heavy rains, flooding--and, one memorable night, the keepers bring the animals to Leslie's hilltop home, where they put the elephants in the garage, the monkeys on the swing-set, an alligator in the tub, ostriches in the hall--but just for the night. The keepers are grateful; Mom is surprised but polite: ``The next time you invite friends home, would you check with me first?'' It's a simple, enticing idea, gracefully and logically developed by this new author and ably abetted by Dyer's watercolors, which nicely capture the animals' appeal and the cozy, dependable family so willing to take them in. A real charmer. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is a must have for any young child!!!!
Great appeal to anyone who enjoys going to the zoo or for kids planning their first trip.
Captures the child's imagination with a little bit of silliness. A great book for young children to have.
This is only one of many tangents for using this book as a teaching tool in the classroom or home school setting. For instance, not only art, but also activity lessons on safety around animals, special needs of animals, accepting others ideas/opinions, other watercolor artists, write to the author, etc. etc. It allows for creativity to abound. I loved it.
