~Barbara Techel, Author of Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog
It's Mori the okapi's birthday and no one at the zoo has wished him a Happy Birthday. I won't spoil the story but want to say that it's not only about meeting Mori. Enter Lito the gerenuk, and Elvis the vulture (don't you just love that name for a bird?), two conniving creatures who are planning something special for Mori. But, will it be enough to brighten Mori's mood?
At the end of the book, the author places a detailed write up on the species gerenuk and vulture; quite interesting. Besides the entertaining read and captivating illustrations, the educational value of reading and learning a second language added a special touch to the story.
To compliment the book, there are two other features available for purchase:
The Zooprise Party Activity Book, $4.95US, 24 pages loaded with fun things to do on a rainy day:
Connect the Dots
Color by letter
Bookmarks and so much more. I have to admit the activities brought fond memories of mom and dad in the kitchen while I sat doing a puzzle as a youngster.
The Zooprise Party Teacher's Guide and Key, $8.95US, is a 22 page valuable resource of information and activities for teachers to use as class projects.
The Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa will delight and entertain children of all ages. A very simple, straightforward book with a message: friends stick together.
This curious tale was written in both Spanish and English. The back of the book displays real life photos of the actual animals at the zoo. A handy activities book and teachers guide hosts games, art ideas, crafts and reading discussion to make learning about the zoo fun for kids.
