    " The fact that it has my name in it biases me a little, but I really enjoyed this book. The rhymes are clever and the story even more-so. I read this to my mother's fourth graders and they enjoyed it (especially the otters reading Harry Potter). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Martin | 1/18/2014

    " Picture Book 34: I actually read the book "Wild About You" but I couldn't find it. I really liked this book because I am obsessed with Giraffes and there were so many pictures of giraffes in it! I love reading books about animals because it makes the book more enjoyable and cute. I would recommend this to parents who have children already and are pregnant with another one to teach the children that they already have that babies are important and need families. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cortney | 1/16/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 1/11/2014

    " I love this book and my son loves this book - but I probably love it more. The librarian accidently? drives the bookmobile into the zoo and before you know it the animals are reading. The rhythm flows nicely and it's clever and the pictures are charming. Big thumbs up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayla | 1/6/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 12/10/2013

    " A bookmobile stops at a zoo and the animals get hooked on reading. Have the kids read the titles the animals read for extra jokes. Bright illustrations make this a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brady/Ella/Gabe | 11/11/2013

    " The animals are wild about books. There are some Dr. Seuss books, and the animals were being rough with the books but then the library teacher showed them how to use them. This book is silly and funny. My favorite part is all the parts. --Brady 7/11 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 11/3/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 6/23/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 12/12/2012

    " This is an awesome book and the illustrtor is Marc Brown (the dude who writes the Author series). This is a charming book about animals having reading time in a zoo. If you look at the illustrations of the books the animals are reading you just might recognize some of them. I loved this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 11/20/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 6/28/2012

    " I love this book too. Most of Lucie's book reviews are reflective of the number of times in a row that she asks to have them read per sitting. But - check out the insect haiku. Lucie learned the word 'dung...' I love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 1/24/2012

    " My "go to" book for class visits at the library. Very cute story told in verse. Also some great vocabulary for younger readers ("niches", "nooks", "haiku"). "
