Who Could YOU Be At The Zoo?

Illustrated by Izabela Ciesinska


Frankie has learned what firefighting is all about: washing fire trucks, understanding the tools of the job, and, of course, learning how to fight the fires. All of the training and hard work pays off when Frankie actually gets to fight her first fire. Not only that, but Frankie becomes a hero by rescuing a little boy. Many people picture firefighters as brave men who face danger every day, but Frankie shows us all that women can excel at firefighting, too.

    An excellent addition to your kindergarten library. As a former kindergarten teacher, I can confidently say that the children will enjoy the theme of this book as it rhymes its way through the zoo. The illustrations will hold their attention. And the children will enjoy acting out the characters too.

    This book transports children to the zoo. Jessica Barlup’s illustrations are bright and bold. The illustrations are so realistic that they inspire kids to dream about all the animals at the zoo even before they get there. And who knows, perhaps the next time your child goes to the zoo, (s)he will be looking forward to seeing all the animals there so that (s)he can decide which animal she can dream of becoming.
