At the zoo, animals in action aren't always what they seem! When you're at the zoo, do you see scary crocodiles? Chimpanzees being silly? Look again! A young narrator makes the rounds of a zoo, pointing out that animals have special reasons for doing what they do. The crocodile is protecting her babies, and the chimpanzees are learning by trying new things. Animals protect, play, bathe, and communicate in different ways. Even the zookeeper isn't just a zookeeper. . .she's the narrator's mom! A picture book that challenges kids to think beyond their first impressions--in a warm and eye-opening read perfect for storytime.
