Zebra on the Go
Written by Jill Nogales
Under the circus big top, the accident occurs. The zebra steps on the lion’s toe. The roaring lion scares the zebra who takes off out of the tent and all through the town. Children will have fun trying to find the zebra hiding on the merry-go-round in an almost hidden picture kind of illustration.
Lots of action, short bouncy rhyming phrases lead the parade through the town. By the time the lion starts sinking under the water, everyone knows who will save the day. The show that began in the circus tent ends at the wharf with the crowd applauding it all.
Teachers, librarians and parents will love this read aloud, and soon will repeat it without ever turning the pages. Children will love pouring over the vibrant watercolors to study all the details and expressions.
This story is sure to become a favorite in no time!
