Book Review - Out and About At the Zoo

Out and About at the Zoo
by Jo Linsdell
Reviewed by Elysabeth
Rating - 5 stars

How many of you have taken your kids to the zoo? Written a story about said experience? Jo Linsdell did just that. Out and About at the Zoo showcases animals seen at the zoo during an outing with her young son. This rhyming story shows the animal antics and other visions one would see at a busy zoo. Jo wrote the story as well as illustrated and the illustrations are so cute and very much in tune to the story that kids of all ages will enjoy reading this book many times over. Kids will start reciting their favorite passages and possibly act out what they hear after reading a few times.

The colorful illustrations and the rhyming story make this a story you will treasure for a long time.
