Rise and shine! It’s almost opening time at the zoo and the zookeeper and his mischievous monkey sidekick scramble to make sure the flamingos are on their toes and elephant has wiped his nose, the giraffes stand up straight and all the animals look great, and that’s just a small part of their busy morning routine. There’s so much to do before the human visitors arrive. Once the gates open, the fun begins, with all sorts of silly antics and even sillier sounds. But look closely, things aren’t always as they seem!
Catchy rhymes, wild and wacky illustrations of creatures of every shape and size, and a fun twist make Kathleen Long Bostrom and illustrator Guy Francis’ The View at the Zoo great fun for all who read it. (Ages 2-4)

Very pleased with this book and my 2 1/2 year old loves it. Not only is it entertaining to read but also fun to name all of the different types of animals.
I bought this book and read it to my 3 month old. He loved it. The illustrations are bright and active. The story is cute and an easy read. I am satisfied with this purchase.
I ordered this for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she absolutely LOVES this book! She can "read" through it herself because the pictures are very detailed and bright. She also loves to have it read to her and enjoys the rhymes and discussing the animals on the pages. This is a great book for little ones who are beginning to discover page books since it's just the right length and fun to read over and over : )
My daughter is only 20 months, but this is her favorite book. She just calls it "ZOO!", and she wants it read several times a day. It's a simple read, it rhymes, and is very cute with a little surprise at the end. It has nice big colorful pictures and is not too long nor too short. It only takes about 3-5 minutes to read the story. Perfect for a young child with a shorter attention span. Just adorable, if your child is anything like mine they will LOVE this book!
My 3 yr old loves this book! This is one of her favorites. She loves to look for the monkey in the zoo keepers hat on every page! I love the illustrations and the story line is great! I highly recommend this book!
