Once again, Brian Wildsmith has let his talent run wild with a collection of marvelously diverse animals that are to be found on a visit to the zoo. The illustrations are accompanied by an interesting fact or two about each animal. Children might enjoy bringing the book to the zoo and identifying the animals they see.
Using brilliantly illustrated animals, the concept of opposites is introduced--big and little, high and low, many and few, are among those illustrated.
Wildsmith teaches colors through the vibrantly illustrated animals on the pages of this popular color book.
A child looks for his toy pig in a variety of pockets. In each one a comic animal is revealed: a snake, a ladybug, a bird, a lamb, a frog and even a monkey. As the child becomes able to identify each animal the game becomes more fun. Kids will enjoy the colorful and humorous illustrations, and grownups will appreciate the vintage feel of the design.
