Day 12. If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo

Book 53.
There's something about visiting zoos that makes me feel really happy, and there's something about reading books about zoos that makes me feel really sad. This story had just enough charm, though, to overlook that.

Zoos can be a great way for children to learn about animals which, in turn, can aid them in being stewards of the earth and all its creatures. And the girl in If Anything Ever Goes Wrong at the Zoo so loving offers to steward each of the zoo animals should anything ever... well... go wrong. After all, the zebras' caretaker tells her that zebras need a large fenced-in area to graze and she immediately offers that she's got a big backyard that's fenced it. Other accommodations are offered and the end result, thanks in large part to the gorgeous water colors, will certainly bring smiles.

I think I'll have to make a point to share this one with my 1st graders!
